CODY, WY (March 13, 2020) – CRH has activated the Incident Command Center
(ICC) structure to aid in our organized and systematic approach to managing
the Coronavirus (Covid‐19) for those that may present to our hospital campus.
The ICC structure is scalable allowing us to expand or contract as needs
dictate. The structure allows for streamlined communication with assigned
roles for a specific purpose and information management. There have been
no confirmed COVID‐19 cases for Cody Regional Health. The opening of the
ICC is to ensure appropriate preparation and planning in case the situation changes.
- Cody Regional Health Incident Command has selected to reduce entry into
the hospital campus effective at noon today, March 12.
- All visitors are being instructed to enter through the Main Entrance near
the Emergency Department. Other doors will be locked to control access.
- A screening process is established at the Main Entrance. This will include
taking the temperature of visitors and individuals with fevers will be
prevented from visiting. Alternative options for contact with their loved
ones will be made available.
- Screening includes questions related to signs or symptoms of a respiratory
infection, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat in
the last 14 days.
- Supporting the CMS recommendations, Long Term Care is not allowing any
visitation at this time. Families are being directly contacted to share
this. Additionally, visitors under the age of 16 are not being allowed
into the hospital facility.
If individuals in the community have symptoms related to the coronavirus
including sore throat, cough, fever of 100.4 or greater, difficulty breathing,
they are being asked to call the Cody Regional Health Emergency Registration
Line at 307‐578‐2000 where a nurse will speak with you about your symptoms.
All of these actions are for the health and safety of patients, visitors
and staff and a precautionary step. For further information about COVID-19,
