Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update & Resources
03.26.2020

Post

Good morning,

We have been informed that three more staff have been potentially exposed to COVID-19.  The offices with possible exposure were Auburn, Sacramento and Citrus Heights. (Important note: We are legally bound to keep the names of both staff and client families confidential)

What does “potentially” exposed mean:  Potentially Exposed is the person has been assessed by a physician and told that they “more than likely” have the virus.  The individual “has not” been tested, but the recommended protocol has been to self-isolate for the next 14 days.

If you were in any of the identified offices between March 12th and March 20th, you may have been potentially exposed and should be assessing yourself for symptoms (click here for common symptoms).

We understand that these notices can be scary and cause many questions about your personal safety and that of your loved ones.  As we learn more about how the virus is spread and its incubation period, it is fair to say that we can expect to be exposed anytime, anywhere and by anybody.

We want to remind you that the best defense against being infected by this virus is your personal commitment and actions related to the CDC recommendations and State Mandates.

•     Stay at Home/Shelter In Place.

  • Social Distancing. (Stay at least 6 feet apart from other people)

•     Cover your cough or sneeze into a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. (If you are unsure of 20 seconds, sing a course of Happy Birthday 2x)

•     Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

•     Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. (including items such as gas pumps, grocery carts, railing, packages/mail, etc.)  

•     Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional. Avoid going to ER or Urgent Care when possible, utilize virtual visits.
