Harbor Hospice and Palliative Care taking proactive measures to reduce exposure of COVID-19
Harbor Hospice and Palliative Care has developed an organization-wide response and mitigation plan to reduce exposure of COVID-19.
Based on the recommendations of the Muskegon County Public Health Department, MDHHS and CDC, Harbor Hospice and Palliative care has developed a “social distancing plan” geared towards reducing person-to-person contact.
Like other Hospice organizations across the country, Harbor Hospice and Palliative Care will implement these measures while continuing to provide visits and core services to our at-risk population in our five county service area.
The practice will be implemented from March 16 until further notice.
Please review the following:
