Our Corona Task Force
We have assembled a task force of company experts, including former hospital Chief Nursing Officers and those certified in infection control measures, to provide guidance on clinical matters such as prevention and treatment, operational policy changes to reduce potential spread on campuses, procurement to manage the supply of protective gear and sanitization products, environmental service updates on appropriate chemicals and strategies to properly clean commonly touched areas and everyday items and executive management to implement temporary operational changes.
