COVID-19 Guide for Employees

THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC HAS DEEPLY IMPACTED ALL OF US—AS HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY, AS HUMAN BEINGS.

At home and at work, we’ve all been facing entirely unique challenges and uncertainties. Children’s team members have been called upon to work in new and different ways we never could have anticipated. Still, in this rapidly evolving reality, we continue to stay #ChildrensStrong, rising to our responsibility to improve the lives of children and serving our community with dedication and dignity. Along the way, we’ve been adapting and supporting one another.

As we’re learning, life in a pandemic doesn’t involve a lot of one-size-fits-all answers or cookie-cutter formulas. What we can offer our team are science-based practices, guidance and resources to navigate these uncharted circumstances. In this guide, we hope to provide you with comprehensive information about Children’s protocols in this pandemic to equip and empower you to do your work safely and confidently. This guide will be updated as we continue to learn more about COVID-19, state and local
guidelines are updated and community situations change.

As always, please share specific questions and concerns with your leader. We’re in this together, and we’re here for you.
