Keeping you Informed, a COVID-19 update

On behalf of everyone at Terri Yurek Insurance Services, our hearts go out to all those impacted by COVID-19—this includes not only those diagnosed with the virus, but also their friends and family, those whose jobs and schools have been impacted and so many more. Our focus is, as always, on the health and safety of our employees, customers and communities.

Our office will remain open and ready to serve you if you need more information on how your health insurance plan is waiving your costs for COVID-19 testing or how to protect yourself from the coronavirus. 

There is no question this is a time of great uncertainty. While we don’t know exactly what the future may hold, we feel confident that by sticking together and supporting each other, we’ll emerge from this stronger than before.

Thank you for your loyalty,
Terri Yurek

PRACTICE GOOD HYGIENE

  • Stop handshaking – use other non-contact methods of greeting (like elbow bumping).
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when sick. This includes staying home from work, school, errands and travel.
  • Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, drink lots of fluids and eat nutritious food.

BE CAREFUL WITH MEETING AND TRAVEL

  • Use videoconferencing for meetings when possible
  • When not possible, hold meetings in open, well-ventilated spaces
  • Consider adjusting or postponing large meetings or gatherings
  • Assess the risks of business travel

STAY HOME IF…

  • You are feeling sick
  • You have a sick family member in your home


If you believe you might have been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms, call your primary care provider right away. Your provider may offer a telehealth option and determine if additional testing is needed.
