CORONA VIRUS POLICY UPDATE FOR OLDN

The corona virus outbreak is an unprecedented global event, and I am confident that the strength of our communities and our generosity toward one another will see us through it.
As we depend upon one another to thrive through these difficult times, every Oregonian must respect the call for social distancing. Our phone lines will remain open. 541-321-6536
Oregon Lyme Disease Network (OLDN) board has discussed the COVID-19 policy for OLDN and its members. During this time we are implementing to following policy to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 to our vulnerable patient population and our volunteer leadership.

1) There will be no more face to face support group meetings offered to our vulnerable patient groups during this time. All in person meetings are cancelled until such a time that the State of Oregon has removed the emergency measures they have implemented related to COVID-19. Please stay in tune with our State Policy regarding the COVID-19 virus.

2) OLDN is unable to provide any medical information related specifically to COVID-19. We will however find resources to point our members to. These will include the WHO, CDC and State Health and ILADS.

3) We do recommend continuing to stay in touch with your primary lyme physician and understand measures to take to help prevent infection with COVID-19

4) If you do begin to show symptoms contact your local physician, or your local urgent care for further instructions.

Stay well, and Thank You for your your understanding during these times.
