As a healthcare workers organization, our mission is to provide all healthcare workers the resources and information needed to stay healthy, and ensure that our families are well taken care of so that we can protect our communities and heal our patients. We will be updating this web page with additional info as we receive them.

COVID-19 testing will be available to eligible individuals who meet criteria established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in addition to state residency and age guidelines. During this interim period, while testing is expanding, testing is being prioritized for people who:

  • have coronavirus symptoms AND
  • have one of these risk factors:
    • are hospitalized,
    • are a resident or staff of long-term health and correctional facilities OR
    • work in a healthcare facility, OR
    • are in prison OR
    • are over 60 years old, have a compromised immune system, or have serious chronic medical conditions.
