There is emerging evidence that pregnant women are at a small increased risk of severe COVID-19 infection. If you are pregnant, please take precautions to avoid the risk of becoming infected both in the workplace and at home.
Always use the recommended personal protective equipment.
If your job involves working with patients who are suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, you may request accommodations from your manager.
We highly encourage leaders to be flexible in assisting pregnant employees to find safer job responsibilities if at all possible.
If you are unable to find an alternative work assignment you may apply for an unpaid personal leave of absence by contacting the Leave of Absence office at LOAFMLprocess@dhha.org.
Your manager may also contact the labor pool at firstname.lastname@example.org to register you for alternative work assignments that may be available in our organization.
Please note that alternative work assignments are not guaranteed.
Be sure that you and your family members follow the current public health recommendations.
Interact with only those in your household;
Maintain social distance of six feet at all times;
Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly.
