COVID-19 Virus Watch
Updated on July 15th
Now more than ever, we want to extend our gratitude to all front line workers and to each of our caregivers. We are continuously doing our part to help flatten the curve. On behalf of our entire ACP family, we want to say the biggest THANK YOU to all healthcare heroes.
What to do if you were potentially exposed to Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
- Self-quarantine.Stay at home and monitor your health for symptoms for 14 days after your last contact.
- Contact your local health department. They will provide you with more recommendations.
- Get tested. Search for the nearest test sampling location and make your appointment. If you test negative during your quarantine period, you will still need to complete your full 14-day quarantine before it is safe to go back to work or be around others.

How is ACP protecting its members?
Our office is gradually reopening to better serve you. The safety of our staff is our highest priority and our office is complying with CDC guidelines:
- Staff and visitors are requested to have their temperature checked prior entering to the office.
- Face masks are mandatory when not within 6ft apart.
- Staff working places have been separated to comply with social distancing rules.
- Our clinical team is performing random COVID-19 tests weekly on our staff to ensure asymptomatic staff is identified and quarantined early.
- ACP caregivers are requested to wear face mask, use hand hygiene best practices, and practice social distance to help protecting themselves and our medically fragile families. We are all in this together and your contribution is essential to help flatten the curve.
We want to assure you that we are closely monitoring all the guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and our office is going through a rigorous sanitization process that involves all shared touchpoints. However, so that we can strongly prevent any cases of contagion and follow the CDC recommendations to avoid crowds of people, we dispersed our departments to perform their duties from home.
This preventive measure has no impact on the routine of excellent care that we serve for our patients since all departments, including Clinical Leadership, Scheduling Team, and Human Resources are still available and all calls will be redirected and answered normally.
We Understand Your Concern
“Is it safe to let healthcare providers into my house?”
Yes. Our ACP Caregivers are licensed professionals and trained to respond quickly to emergencies, which include recognizing the symptoms of the COVID-19 if necessary, as well as offering the services and care that our patients need and always following the safety instructions recommended by the U.S Center for Diseases Control (CDC).
We are taking every step to plan for any contingency and we don’t forecast interruption of services. As your partner, it is important to remind you that the care we provide to your loved one is ordered by your doctor. Help us maintain this important consistency and continuity of care.
