Coronavirus Contact at Memorial Health System
Memorial Health System has been notified that the Washington County person identified positive for COVID-19 has a social connection to one of our Wound Care Center employees. That employee is currently being tested.
In a press release, the health system said it is placing all Wound Care Center staff in potential contact on a 14-day quarantine until final results are known.
“To be abundantly cautious and help protect the safety of our employees, patients, and community,” said the release. “In addition, we are contacting patients who came in contact, and are asking them to quarantine for 14 days as well.”
The system said that staff that were not in contact will still be able to see patients. Patients with upcoming appointments are being contacted and appointments being coordinated to continue to deliver care important to their health and well-being.
