COVID-19 Resources for Businesses

Operating During a Pandemic

As businesses and organizations in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio continue to operate during the pandemic, there will be challenges. As we all navigate a new normal, Parkview is a resource for our community, partnering with you to provide information on best practice. We’re also sharing our own insights and lessons learned while maintaining operations since the start of the pandemic.

Parkview’s plans call for a phased approach to resume normal operations and will be dependent on numerous factors. It will require ongoing monitoring and we expect changes and new learning along the way. Our focus is creating a sustained approach – a marathon rather than a sprint – with a focus on co-worker, patient and community safety.

Parkview’s decisions to continue specific services are based on many factors, including number of patients hospitalized, level of care needed for our patients, staffing availability, supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) and more.

Safe Business Operations

A plan for safe business operation during the COVID-19 pandemic should be routinely evaluated with these elements in mind, thinking in terms of both reducing the spread of the virus among employees and customers while maintaining business operations.

Questions businesses should consider include:

  1. Are COVID-19 health and safety mitigations in effect for the health and safety of my employees throughout the workday, including, as necessary, transport to and from my facility?
  2. Do I have a reasonable, ongoing demand for my product/service?
  3. Do I have ample quantities of materials, products and other supplies to support my operations at a reasonable level?
  4. Are there any local, state or federal mandates in place that affect my operations? 

Identify level od risk

Identify Level of Risk

The level of risk depends in part on the industry type, need for contact within 6 feet of people known to be, or suspected of being, infected with COVID-19, or requirement for repeated or extended contact with others in general. With community spread, it’s difficult to know who has been exposed to the virus and who could be a carrier. 

safe environment

As you design strategies to operate during the pandemic consider:

  • Flexibility – anticipate that the situation will be fluid
  • Sustainability – expect that the situation will be long-term
  • Collaboration – seek information from internal and external subject matter experts
  • Simplicity – don’t overlook small changes that can make an impact
