OnCallCare is committed to ensuring the safety and health of our employees and patients. All employees or patients with known or suspected to have COVID-19 Coronavirus must undergo a COVID-19 screening at a local hospital. Anyone who fails the screening should inform us.
We encourage all patients and employees to take these everyday preventive actions:
Extra cautions with crowds and travel:
Avoid crowds, especially in poorly ventilated spaces. Your risk of exposure to respiratory viruses like COVID-19 may increase in crowded, closed-in setting with little air circulation if there are people in the crowd who are sick.
The CDC recommends that you defer all cruise ship travel worldwide, particularly if you also have underlying health issues.
Older adults and travelers with underlying health issues should avoid situations that put you at increased risk for more severe disease. In addition to avoiding crowded places, you should avoid non-essential travel such as long plane trips, and especially avoiding embarking on a cruise ship.
Preparing for healthcare needs:
Be sure you have over-the-counter medicines and medical supplies to treat fever and other symptoms. Most people will be able to recover from COVID-19 at home.
