Together with our existing infection control policies, Evoke Wellness is monitoring local, state and federal guidelines regarding the coronavirus pandemic in order to enhance efforts in keeping our patients safe. Our physicians and clinical staff are following CDC guidelines and our medical detox & residential treatment facility has added additional screening measures for incoming patients, such as review of travel history and current health status, in an effort to reduce those with flu-like symptoms from admitting to our facilities. Our precautionary measures are aimed at proactively ensuring that all patients, families, visitors, and staff are healthy as we join the nationwide effort to contain COVID-19.
Evoke Wellness COVID-19 Response
A top priority will always be to keep our patients and staff safe and healthy. Management at Evoke Wellness continues to monitor COVID-19 and direct staff based on what we are learning daily about stopping the spread of the novel coronavirus. For your safety, and the safety of all communities, if you’re feeling sick, stay home and seek medical treatment when needed. As we continue our fight against the addiction epidemic, we are closely following information and recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and local public health authorities in order to plan and implement preventative measures against COVID-19. We are optimistic that the measures we have put in place will help ensure the health and safety of our patients, families, visitors, and staff. The coronavirus pandemic is dynamic and the situation continues to change frequently, and we are on top of the latest recommendations. Our prayer is that these measures are temporary as we join the nationwide fight against COVID-19 and reaffirm our fight against the spread of addiction. As a public reminder, the most important things individuals can do to prevent the spread of any illness is:
- Wash your hands often.
- Wash your hands before and after you eat, cough, sneeze, use the bathroom, and when providing care to a patient.
- Make sure you use soap and scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds (happy birthday song twice). If soap and water are not readily available, please use an alcohol-based sanitizer containing at least 60-95% alcohol.
- Cover your nose mouth when you sneeze or cough.
- Cover your mouth with a tissue; if you don’t have a tissue, use your elbow.
- Remember to wash your hands after you cough or sneeze. Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
- Germs often spread this way. Perform routine environmental cleaning.
- Frequently clean commonly used surfaces such as tables, doorknobs or handles, keyboards, remote controls, touched surfaces workstations and countertops.
- Disposable wipes are a great way to perform this preventative measure.
