Per Governor DeWine’s travel advisory, Kettering Health Network employees and providers are strongly encouraged to utilize safe practices when traveling both in and out of the state of Ohio. The Ohio travel advisory states that residents should use caution when travelling to states with a 15% or higher positive test rate.
It is not necessarily where you go, rather, it is more about what you are doing. Please employ safe practices such as social distancing, wearing masks or face coverings, and maintaining good hand hygiene. We also recommend self-monitoring for CDC-recognized symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, congestion or runny nose, fatigue, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. It is also advised that you perform temperature checks twice daily upon your return. Any network employee who shows symptoms upon their return from travel should call Employee Health on their home campus prior to returning to work.
We will continue to monitor the advisory and will change our process as necessary. For the most up-to-date travel advisory guidelines, please click here.
