RESULTS OF HEALTHCARE WORKER COVID-19 TESTING08-Apr-2020
Plumas District Hospital tested a total of 76 employees over four days as part of the COVID-19 surveillance program for employees and physicians. Testing focused on personnel whose job duties require frequent patient contact.
After review of the returned results today, we are pleased to report that 55 results returned negative, and 21 are still pending.
As an additional precaution all employees will undergo a daily screening, including a temperature check, at the beginning of their shift and wear a surgical mask throughout the duration of their workday.
Plumas District Hospital continues to provide services. Our rural health clinics are open daily, to care for patients who have acute care needs, such as illnesses, injuries or required monitoring. In addition, the emergency room is open 24/7. When possible, we do encourage patients to use one of the following options for care that does not require a visit in person:

Plumas District Hospital launched a new service - Video Visits - earlier this week. Video Visits are accessed through the hospital’s HealtheLife patient portal. The Video Visit allows patients to “see” their healthcare provider using a home computer or laptop. Next time you need an appointment be sure to ask if a Video Visit is right for you.
