Our Response to COVID-19

HomeCourt Home Care understands that the uncertain times we are in can be stressful for clients and their families. We review guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) daily and provide updates as they become available. HomeCourt Home Care is committed to providing quality home care services in a safe environment for clients and staff. We continue to implement infection control and protective measures in accordance with guidance from state and local health officials. 

Please visit coronavirus.gov for the most current COVID-19 resources, recommendations, FAQs, and guidelines. 

HomeCourt Home Care caregivers have been instructed to conduct self-screening for COVID-19 symptoms prior to reporting to work. Caregivers experiencing symptoms or who are living with a sick household member must refrain from reporting to work and must follow the proper isolation and testing requirements before returning to work.

All caregivers have been directed to follow enhanced prevention procedures, including but not limited to: 

  • Properly using PPE (face masks when applicable, gloves)

  • Avoid touching public areas with your hands whenever possible, including such things as doorknobs, elevator buttons, restroom surfaces, restaurant menus and tables, public computer keyboards, etc.

  • Avoid touching their eyes, nose, or mouth.

  • Wash their hands often with soap and water frequently, for at least 20 seconds.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Cover their cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash hands.

  • Clean and disinfect all touched surfaces and objects frequently using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

  • Avoid crowds, especially in poor ventilated spaces. Your risk of exposure to respiratory viruses like COVID-19 may increase in crowded, closed-in settings with little air circulation if there are people in the crowd who are ill.

  • Avoid all non-essential travel including planned trips, and especially cruise ships.

  • Consider vaccination and applicable boosters as soon as possible.

We require that any employees living with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 quarantine for the appropriate amount of time or be tested to ensure everyone's safety.
