COVID-19 FAQ

Last Updated: Oct 29, 2020

Q. Where is JCHC getting their information?

There are many medical professionals working to keep our community safe.  At JCHC, we employ an Infection Preventionist.  Kristina Duarte, RN, BSN.  An Infection Preventionist is not only in charge of COVID regulations but is someone who helps JCHC and AHCC avoid infections in general.

JCHC also has the Johnson County Health Officer, Dr. Mark Schueler on staff.  Together, they are following the CDC guidelines, the CMS guidelines, and the APIC guidelines, along with the local, state, and national guidelines.  These are the best sources for medical professionals in how to prepare for and treat COVID-19.
The JCHC staff work with Johnson County Public Health and the Wyoming Department of Health to stay up to date, and to keep our community safe.
