With our own eyes, we have seen how local businesses have been affected by the pandemic, having to keep their doors shut.  At our workplace we have also seen how the pandemic has changed the way we manage our day to day business with the addition of the labor pool and the ramping up of virtual care.  To top everything off, we are entering the flu season and are expecting an influx of patients like never before.

Is COVID-19 stressing you out?

During these unprecedented/trying times a lot of us may be stressed out and on the edge. We are seeing things unfold like never before, schools have been closed for months but, we are essential and we still have to work. 

Kaiser Permanente's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) recognizes that all the above and more may be affecting our psyche and therefore have organized a facilitated group call-in session three times a week.
