WMC COVID-19 Outbreak Response Update
In response to Gov. Inslee State of Emergency Proclamation and in partnership with the Wa. Department of Health (DOH) the WMC has made scheduling and staffing changes to address the outbreak. We are sending this alert to keep you updated about our internal changes and those impacting healthcare workers directly.
Currently most of our staff is teleworking. This step will help reduce the probability of contact between people carrying COVID-19 and work-related risks of infection. However, our licensing staff is still in full-force and working to license healthcare workers on time.
We appreciate your patience if emails and calls are returned slightly slower during our outbreak response. Additionally, WMC meetings have been moved to virtual formats. The WMC Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy Workgroup, Wed. April 8, 2020 at 3:15 pm will be held via GoToMeeting and phone. Get the call-in info and agenda here.
The DOH has created a webpage for Healthcare Provider Resources & Recommendations. This site has important information regarding testing, infection prevention and more. If you cannot access this site please contact the WMC.
More informtion to follow soon.
