In light of current uncertainties, unfortunately many of our practices are having to consider other alternatives for their employees as we sift through this pandemic. As we are all in this together, we compiled a list of resources to share with your team when having them apply for unemployment. And remember, we WILL get through this, friends!

Friends, as we navigate through these difficult and confusing times, we want to stay as transparent as possible while also remaining a source of information and support as we move forward. Today we wanted to hop on and share a message from PCSO President, Robert Meister, regarding the pandemic:
.
"As the COVID-19 situation continues to rapidly evolve, we want to make you aware of resources available to you. In these unprecedented times, we are all trying to figure out the best course of action as conditions and recommendations change hourly.
We know that communicating with patients and taking care of your staff is a primary concern. To that end, included here is an email template that you may choose to modify and use for patient communication, as well as an office checklist and virtual visit guide to assist you. We have also compiled some guidance for unemployment for your team as well financial resources.
These are uncertain times for all of us to say the least. I do take some comfort, however, in knowing we are all in this together.
.
Please reach out if you have thoughts or questions. Wishing you health and wellness.
-Robert Meister, DDS, MS"
