Latest COVID-19 information for providers
The health of Culinary Health Fund participants and our whole community is important to us all. Please consider whether delaying nonessential, elective procedures would benefit your patients. Please discuss the risks and benefits of any procedural delay with your patients. Doing so may reduce potential exposure to COVID-19 and preserve health care facility capacity to respond to more medically ill patients in our community.
In a similar vein, please follow ongoing recommendations for screening patients and working with the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) to ensure their care is coordinated in the right location at the right time.
For patients who are positively screened for COVID-19, please coordinate with the SNHD and do not send the patient to the Culinary Health Center. If they are clinically ill, send the patient to a hospital ER.
