TMC COVID – 19 Resource Page
Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause respiratory illnesses that present as the common cold but may also cause severe pneumonias. As you are aware, this new or novel coronavirus or COVID -19 has been reported in the United States. While the case counts at this point are low, the CDC reports that more cases are likely to be identified in the coming days. It is also likely that person-to-person spread will continue to occur. Now is the time to plan. Be diligent and DON’T panic!
TMC is sensitive to the needs of our clients and will monitor updates from the CDC and other national agencies. This page will serve as a resource for our clients, providing information that is needed to continue to provide care for patients while ensuring adequate protection for workers.
