As COVID-19 continues to be top of mind for many in the U.S. and worldwide, we’d like to share the measures that California Transplant Services, Inc. is taking to ensure the health and well-being of our patients, families, partners, and staff.
Even in these uncertain times, our commitment to the mission of changing lives is first and foremost. California Transplant Services, Inc. will continue to serve others by connecting them to the gifts of donation and transplantation.
We are taking the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our staff and patients who will receive the gift of life. This includes screening all transplant donors for potential and diagnosed COVID-19 cases.
While our business operations continue, California Transplant Services, Inc. and its partners have canceled or postponed all community events, including those associated with National Donate Life Month in April. Although difficult, this decision was made to limit the exposure of our donor families, recipients, our team, and the community-at-large to the risk of coronavirus.
Finally, we’ve taken additional measures to protect our California Transplant Services, Inc. team, including suspending non-essential travel and arranging for our staff to work from home, wherever possible. Our offices now prohibit vendors and public entrance. Our cleaning and sanitation frequencies have increased. Staff are not allowed to enter the building with a fever, cough or any illness.
The safety of our team is a top priority, and we will continue to evaluate our response and make decisions in the best interest of all as the situation evolves.
