Dr. David Levy, an epidemiologist and CEO of EHE Health, addresses the spread of the Omicron variant, the essential importance of vaccination and boosters, and what EHE Health is doing to help protect our employees and patients during this challenge:

“We have the tools to defeat this latest variant, we will use them, and we will stay focused on our mission at EHE of health, productivity, and longevity.

We are offering all of our clinic employees and patients seen at our clinics free rapid antigen testing kits for home use for themselves and their families.”

    COVID-19 UPDATE

    OMICRON BA.2 SUBVARIANT OF CORONAVIRUS

    04/02/22

     

    As the Omicron variant spreads, EHE Health clinics have what you need—COVID-19 tests, vaccines, and boosters—to be safe. Members can receive COVID-19 testing regardless of their last appointment date.

    Convenient appointments are available now. Call 888.672.8172 to schedule.

    The Omicron variant, first idenfitied in South Africa, is now surfacing around the world. More will be known about this new variant in the coming weeks, including how Omicron compares to Delta. In the meantime, here are things to keep in mind:

    • Omicron appears to be more contagious than other variants
    • Omicron does not currently appear to cause more severe cases of COVID-19
    • While current vaccines’ effectiveness against Omicron is still to be determined, early cases have been concentrated among unvaccinated people

    We will provide new information about Omicron as it becomes available. For additional details, please see the latest CDC update.

    EHE Health locations adhere to the highest safety standards. Our tested and vaccine-boosted staff are here to help you stay protected against COVID-19 now and healthier for years to come.

        TIPS FOR A
        SAFER WORKDAY

        Once you’ve been cleared to return to
        your workplace through the Safe at Work™  program, it’s important to maintain
        good health by continuing COVID-19 preventive measures.

        Here are some tips:

        Commute

        If you use public transit, maintain as much distance as possible from other passengers.
        Wear a face covering. Use hand sanitizer after touching any surfaces or doors.

        Food

        If possible, pack your lunch at home and eat at your desk rather than in a shared space.

        Exercise

        While gyms near your workplace may be reopening, it’s safer to continue  working out at  home.  

        Office

        Do not shake hands. Hold virtual meetings when possible and limit in-person meetings
        to small, physically distanced groups. 

        4 TIPS FOR PARENTS COPING WITH COVID-19

        As the COVID-19 situation continues to disrupt typical family life, parents may be facing a different set of challenges.

        Whether your children are young and frightened about what’s going on, teenagers coping with the loss of what’s typically the season for prom and graduation, or even young adults out on their own but struggling with the practical realities of lockdown—parent-child bonds are central to moving through this period.
        Try these ways of helping your kids thrive despite COVID-19.

        why exercise is so important right now

        Exercise is always good for your health, but it’s especially important while many of us remain cooped up at home. 

        If you haven’t put exercise into your daily routine, now’s the time! No matter how you get moving, whether it’s an online class or push-ups in the middle of the day, the important thing is to get moving.
