Coronavirus Resources for Home Care & Hospice
During this challenging time for all healthcare providers, including those who work in hospice and palliative care, it is important to stay informed and to keep current with rapidly changing guidance from local, state and federal resources. We have developed this page to serve as a resource to our members and visitors from the home health, hospice and palliative care community. This page will continue to be updated as more information is made available.

Health Protocols

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The CDC recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask (facemasks are only needed for those who show symptoms of coronavirus).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
