Like all frontline health care organizations, CSVS staff, whether administrative or clinical, were not spared from COVID-19 infection. This chapter looks at our statistics. Our staff strictly adhered to CDC guidelines including frequent hand-washing and or the use of hand sanitizers, and are equipped with standard PPE for all, with PPRR for those performing COVID-19 tests. Use of PPE to include N95 masks and eye goggles or face shields is mandatory for the staff. In addition, masks are required for transiting between the car / parking lot and the clinic.

Once it was learned that there was high risk of spread of the virus in staff break rooms, the latter were no longer used as a gathering place for meals and socialization. All breaks are to be taken outside of the clinic (staff usually retires to their respective cars).

In the mean time, we deployed TeleHealth services (see appropriate page of this site) to limit patient and staff exposure and the risk of infection.
