Sound’s Coronavirus Update March 16, 2020

To our community,

With the updated declaration from Gov. Inslee on Sunday, March 15, on the statewide shutdown of restaurants, bars, entertainment, and recreational facilities, effective Monday, March 16, we feel it is important to let you know that Sound continues its support of the community by offering essential services – to our most vulnerable clients. To ensure that our environments are continuing to serve the community, we want to assure you of the processes and best practices we have had in place:

  • Daily cross-disciplinary briefings to discuss the latest developments, challenges, and solutions to continue running our business operations and continuing to keep our locations open for essential services.
  • Required and mandatory screening of all team members daily to ensure that they are not experiencing or exhibiting symptoms.
  • Senior team members have fanned out into the community and are on-site at Sound locations. Management and Supervisors continue to be located at each site as well.
  • As a healthcare organization, and in accordance with the guidance provided by public health entities, Sound is fully engaged in appropriate processes to ensure safe and healthy facilities for our team members and clients.

For those who continue to be impacted by the Coronavirus, here is a link to additional helpful resources.

We wish to assure everyone in the community that we are doing everything within our ability to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, while still treating our community’s most vulnerable people.

Sound acknowledges the amazing work our Safety Teams, our Clinical Teams and all of our Facilities Teams have been doing in the weeks leading up to the Coronavirus response statewide, and to the current day. Their dedication and strict adherence to the Public Health policy recommendations from King County and other entities is nothing less than astounding. We are proud of the work these individuals are doing.

Please continue to check back frequently for more Sound Coronavirus Updates, as we will continue providing timely information to the community. Until then, please stay safe and healthy.
