CHI Health at Home is closely following the latest developments with coronavirus. We are constantly monitoring the latest developments and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and local health departments and are implementing their recommendations as we learn more about this disease. The safety of our clients, family members, caregivers, and employees remains our highest priority and we are taking steps to limit the spread of the virus and care for those who need it.
In an effort to protect our clients and their families, CHI Health at Home has made the following adjustments:
Coronavirus disease 2019 (abbreviated to COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. COVID-19 is now spreading in many parts of the United States. While most people are at low risk of contracting the virus, it can spread through close contact with someone who is already infected. Learn more about how coronavirus is spread on the CDC website.
Certain behavior changes can help prevent the spread of coronavirus in our communities. Many states have implemented restrictions on large gatherings, and people are encouraged to practice "social distancing" by avoiding crowds and remaining 6 feet apart from each other while in public places.
Here are a few additional actions you can take to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:
Patients with COVID-19 have mild to severe respiratory symptoms that can include fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath.
We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available. You can also find the latest on the CDC website as well as the website of your state health department.
