Important Coronovirus News & Resources

There is no specific treatment currently for Coronavirus. Most infected people will recover on their own. If you or a family member have traveled recently to an erase of risk, or if you think you may have been exposed to the virus and have symptoms of respiratory illness, you should call your healthcare provider or the advice number on your health insurance card for further instructions.

Coronavirus usually causes an upper respiratory tract illness like the common cold. Patients with this new coronavirus have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath according to the CDC.

It’s still cold and flu season, and the same practices that stop the spread of these common illnesses are recommended:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are at risk.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue away and wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces you touch.

Labor law compliance is very important because it prevents operational errors and legal infractions which could result in penalties and investigations. For example, one potential mistake is not documenting all employee breaks in timesheets. Care facilities may excel in providing onsite care to clients, but might need some help in operations management.
