Liver Health Connection COVID-19 Service Update
We are modifying services for the health and safety of our clients, staff, and community. Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, we have cancelled our outreach, hepatitis C/HIV testing, and events until July 1st. However, staff will be conducting hepatitis C and HIV antibody testing in our Denver office by appointment only. Please call us at 800-522-4372 to schedule a test. We will also be returning to community sites for educational presentations to ten or fewer participants, while also maintaining six feet of social distancing. Additionally, we will be participating in virtual community events throughout the month of June to continue raising awareness of viral hepatitis.
Director of Community Engagement Olivia Haloi has developed safety precautions for staff in accordance with CDC and CDPHE guidelines. Staff will wear disposable masks, gloves, and carry extra hand sanitizers. Prior to testing and teaching educational presentations, staff will conduct a COVID-19 symptom checklist with clients, take their temperature using a digital thermometer, and provide them with masks. Staff will also monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19, notify management, and self-quarantine for 14 days if they suspect they have COVID-19. Please visit our website for future updates about returning to community testing in our newsletter section. We thank you all for your support and hope you are staying safe and taking good care.
We will continue to follow guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and notify you as soon as we resume testing, education, and events.
Thank you for your patience and please take good care.
