Keeping Best Practices for Continuous Care
Metnurse Health Services, Inc. is an essential service provider, which is why we keep serving you during the COVID-19 quarantine. We regularly review CDC guidelines to guarantee your safety at all times.
In particular, we follow these guidelines:
- Avoid commonly-touched surfaces with your hands whenever possible, such as doorknobs, tabletops, elevator buttons, restroom surfaces, computer keyboards, etc.
- Clean and disinfect such surfaces and objects frequently using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
- Keep your hands away from your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Wash your hands with soap and water frequently for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- If you are sick, stay home.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Avoid crowds, especially in poorly ventilated spaces. Your risk of exposure to COVID-19 rises dramatically in such areas.
- Avoid all non-essential travel, including plane trips and cruise ships.
Consider following your community’s safety protocols as much as possible. If you would like to learn more about our safety guidelines, contact us at any time.
