I received a few concerned emails this week inquiring why we did not have a webinar this week. It's true, I took the week off!  (Not really, I returned to my day job for part of it, and attempted to home school for the remainder.) 

To recap where we stand this Friday AM - many of us are in the same place this morning as we started on Monday - waiting to see if our bankers are misinformed about our status as "top priority", "about to be PPP funded".   We did have a few upsides this week...some more stimulus money approved by Congress, and allocated specifically through HHS (including for ASCs and other Medicare providers).   Certain municipalities are opening doors for some of our ranks, including labs and upstate operatories.  So, some changes happening. 

Many of you have caught the "re-open" itch and plans are starting to percolate; plans AND ACTION are necessary for those of us with the PPP funds to spend, as our clock is now ticking.  Many of you are planning on a soft open in 2-3 weeks, with planned fuller schedules as of May 18.   With those time frames on my mind as the general plan I'm hearing, I'm happy to host an FAQ session next week on "how tos"'.  Send me questions you would like answered that are COVID related - reopening or otherwise and I will work to prepare some materials.   Specifics on PPP would be handled offline.  

If part of your plan are new associate or staff contracts, procrastination is over.  We need to get to work this coming week.   

COVID POLICIES
As an FYI - on our time away from botching our use of Zoom and GoToWebinar, Michael and I have been finishing up COVID Protocols for Staff and Patients, specialty specific.  If you have not told us yet you want a copy, email me directly.   We are charging a nominal fee (TBD) for compiling to cover the collective time expenditure it took us to prepare.
