Geisinger providing best practices, signage and guidance for employers

DANVILLE, Pa. – As businesses prepare to reopen across Pennsylvania, Geisinger is providing tools, information and guides to help employers keep their staff and patrons safe and healthy.

This online resources center is available at go.geisinger.org/businessresources and includes frequently asked questions, best practices, guidance for screening employees, signage kits promoting handwashing and social distancing at the workplace, and more. Virtual consultations are also available upon request.

“As a healthcare partner in the community, Geisinger is lending expertise and best practices in care delivery to our local businesses as they carefully return to in-person operations,” said Allison Hess, vice president of health at the Geisinger Steele Institute for Health Innovation. “By taking the proper precautions and following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state Department of Health, employers can minimize potential exposure in the workplace as we navigate the coronavirus pandemic together.”

Additionally, Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) is offering new virtual and telephonic services to members. These include health coaching, population health programs, behavioral health services and online health resources.
