Good afternoon. I practice in the West Coast where Covid is starting to ramp up! Just this week, I was informed that a pediatric practice and subspecialty pediatric practice each had an employee test positive. The pediatric practice closed its doors, mandated that all employees be tested for covid and the owner called all patients that were exposed. The subspecialty office called their exposed patients (how I found out due to mutual patient) but not sure of any other measures.
My question is: what steps have other private practices done once they are informed there has been an employee testing positive? If a medical practice is wearing appropriate PPE all day, what actions would private practice partners take with their employees and patients? I would appreciate everyone’s opinions. I live in Nevada, if that matters.
