At PRIDE, the safety and wellbeing of our employees and customers are our top priority. We are closely monitoring the situation through trustworthy sources such as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Placer County Health & Human Services department.

On March 4, PRIDE restricted employee business travel. We are also encouraging employees to avoid business gatherings of 50 or more people, to use video conferencing when conducting meetings, and to work from home if practical and approved by their manager.

Case managers and job coaches are reviewing hand washing techniques and other best practices in personal hygiene with employees who need assistance.

If employees need to see a healthcare provider for non-urgent care or advice, we encourage you to use telehealth — doctors’ appointments conducted over the phone, email, or video that do not require an in-person visit. PRIDE’s Anthem/Blue Cross and Kaiser plans provide telehealth options.

To sanitize PRIDE buildings and our customers’ buildings, PRIDE’s custodial teams are using cleaning products recommended by the International Sanitation Supply Association and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

In addition to our customary thorough cleaning practices, PRIDE has increased cleaning personnel at our Roseville, CA headquarters.  All touch surfaces (door handles, glass, faucets, counters, etc.) are disinfected three times a day using a 2-step cleaning process.

We want to remind everyone again to do the following to help stop the Coronavirus from spreading:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Sneeze or cough into your sleeve to avoid spreading germs with your hands.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has created guidelines on what to do if you are sick. Should you experience symptoms such as cough, temperature above 100.4 degrees F (or 38 degrees C), or difficulty breathing, public health officials recommend the following:

  • Those with cold-like symptoms should isolate at home and restrict outside activities. Manage symptoms with over-the-counter medications, regardless of whether you have a cold, the flu, or COVID-19.
  • If you need to see a healthcare provider for non-urgent care or advice, we encourage you to use telehealth, if available, which provides doctors’ appointments conducted over the phone, email, or video and do not require an in-person visit. PRIDE’s Anthem/Blue Cross and Kaiser plans provide telehealth options.
  • If you feel you have an urgent situation and need to see your healthcare provider, call ahead so they know you are coming.
  • You should only call 911 or go to an emergency department if you believe that you are extremely sick, or your life is in imminent danger. Other emergencies are still occurring, and emergency resources must be available to address all of them, not just COVID-19
