The Coulee COVID-19 Compass provides risk assessment using 10 data points in three categories (Epidemiology Status- what the disease is doing, Healthcare Capacity, and Public Health Capacity).

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

 “Although we haven’t adopted a formal written policy, hospital administration and the board of directors have adopted the requirement that all patients must wear a mask for the entire time they’re in the building. This practice is based on recommendations from the CDC and the State Department of Health, and is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. If you refuse to comply with this requirement, you’re free to seek out other options for your healthcare.”
