COVID-19 Resources

For the health and safety of our patients and our staff, Granite VNA follows the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the NH Department of Public Health (DPH) as we navigate the ever-changing environment with COVID-19, including:

- Requiring all staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19, except employees who qualify for an exemption or accommodation
- Providing masks and eye protection for our staff to wear during all visits
- Requiring staff to report any illness or exposure concerns before reporting to work each day. Staff with any illness symptoms or temperature above 100.4 degrees will not work
- Updating staff when CDC and/or DPH make changes to their recommendations

As always, we remind everyone to follow CDC recommendations by:

- Washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then promptly discard the tissue in the trash
- Avoiding touching eyes, mouth, and nose with unwashed hands
- Avoiding sharing of personal items such as water bottles or utensils
