Guidelines for Healthcare Provider During Coronavirus Pandemic


I’m a healthcare provider. I’m struggling with trying to keep a social distance while still working full-time. In other areas of the country providers have been asked to telework if they are not seeing patients. I have had no changes in my normal schedule and I have a child now home from school. The message seems to be a contradiction: make no modifications to my work schedule but expect me to reliably distance my kids from the community. We have no family here to help and our closest friends just returned from CA on Sunday. I work with a fragile patient population and feel what is being asked of me is unreasonable. I’m also the only provider with two working parents and two small kids.
