The Pingree Center’s number one priority is the health and well-being of our clients, staff, and community. COVID19 has been challenging for everyone and has shaped the way we function as a Center. We understand the importance of standard safety precautions and how they are vital to keeping the Pingree Center operational. Over the past year, we implemented practices and safeguards to slow and stop the spread of COVID19 and other diseases in the Center. We are working hard at making the COVID19 vaccine available to Pingree employees. We plan to continue to implement our safety practices going forward to ensure everyone is healthy and safe. Help by partaking in the following safety precautions:
1. Get vaccinated if you are able to do so
2. Do not gather in groups other than those living in your household
3. Wear a mask when you are not alone and practice social distancing
4. Avoid going into work if you are sick and avoid being in contact with people that are sick
5. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
6. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
7. Wash your hands as often as possible
As our country and state monitor COVID19, the Pingree Center is committed to protecting the health and safety of our community. We made the following changes in 2020 in an effort to slow the spread of COVID19 and to ensure smooth operations for our healthcare system and will continue to consider these items in the months to come:
– Screening staff for symptoms
– Monitoring all clients daily
– Restricting and limit visitors to the Center
– Canceling or postpone all large-scale gatherings
We will continue to monitor the situation and respond to changes to this public health situation.
Together we can help protect others and save lives. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please reach out to the Pingree Center.

The best way to protect yourself from contracting COVID-19 is by using the same daily habits that help prevent the spread of many viruses, including the common cold and the flu. To help prevent the spread of disease always:
Stay home if you have a fever, are coughing, sneezing, have a runny nose, or are having difficulty breathing. Please wear a mask in our Center. Please also consider using Intermountain’s Connect Care service on your smartphone, tablet, or computer to connect with an Intermountain clinician and receive specific care recommendations.
