What is the protocol if a patient presents as a potential COVID-19 case?

January 21, 2021

Under CDC guidelines, the patient will be immediately tested and isolated. Potentially exposed employees will be identified. Gale clinicians who are deemed to have high or medium risk exposure by the CDC guidelines will be restricted from working for a 2-week period following the last potential exposure. Local authorities may allow clinicians to work if they have been symptom-free for 72 hours and in quarantine for 10 days or been in quarantine for 7 days and have a negative test result. The Gale Clinical team will continue monitoring those clinicians and will provide guidance and follow up, as needed. Local health departments may also provide follow-up instructions for each individual exposed.
