COVID-19: INFORMATION FOR LONG TERM CARE PROVIDERS
The CDC and Texas HHS are reliable sources for helpful steps on how you can try and protect your staff and clients from the COVID-19 virus. As such, we will point you straight to helpful articles from these agencies so you and your team can be proactive in helping stop the spread of the disease. Texas HHS has specific guidance on replacing face to face case manager and coordinator meetings with phone/telemedicine for the next 30 days (dated 03/17/20) – contact HHS (or check your email) for specifics as to which services this applies. Texas HHS also has ‘essential visitor’, PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) guidance etc for HCS and TxHmL facilities. As always your local HHS contact/website is your best source for ongoing updates. The CDC also has useful tips too. Stay Safe!
