Recently answered questions

If I travel, in-between assignment or while on assignment, what guidelines should I follow upon my return?

If you choose to travel while on assignment, to other states with a higher percentage of rates of infection, please refer to the CDCs guidelines on returning to your assignment location. The COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly evolving situation and CDC guidance is updated frequently. Please visit our coronavirus information site for specific travel advisory information for your upcoming assignment, as well as keeping yourself updated on any travel advisories for your state or surrounding states.

Where can I get tested for COVID-19?

If you are on assignment or about to start your assignment, check FIRST with the state guidelines or facility you are assigned to and identify if they offer testing. Testing locations and availability vary across the country. Decisions about testing are at the discretion of state and local health departments. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to get tested, call your medical provider first. If you are currently on assignment, check with the facility you are assigned to and identify if they offer testing. If they do not offer testing, ask the facility for guidance on recommended nearby community testing locations. If you have exhausted those options, you can also coordinate testing through public health laboratories, or work with clinical or commercial laboratories.

If you are on assignment or about to start your assignment, please follow guidance from your Recruiter about your assignment state and facility. There are states which have specific travel guidance, including Alaska, Connecticut, DC, Florida, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Ohio, which mandated temporary quarantine restrictions on June 25, 2020. Essential healthcare workers are exempt, but may be expected to seek diagnostic testing upon arrival in the state, will need to monitor for symptoms, practice social distancing and perform other safety measures as required. Please check the state or facility you are assigned to for specific guidelines.
