Dear AMHE members, friends and families,


I hope this email finds all of you in good health. We are going through a rough time and the Executive Committee of the NJ Chapter of AMHE wants you to know that we are in this together.


Please know that in GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES we are here for you. As the novel coronavirus COVID-19 spreads around the world, it is very important that we stay strong, follow the advice of public health officials, stay home, protect ourselves and our loved ones.


There is an overwhelming amount of information circulating, as well as, misinformation out there as well. For that reason, we urge you to visit the CDC website (www.cdc.gov and www.cdc.gov/coronavirus) for the latest information. As you will see on the CDC website, it is crucial, as we attempt to curtail the spread of this virus globally, that we follow the below actions at a minimum:


1- "SOCIAL DISTANCING" — avoid close contact with people who are sick and put distance between yourself and other people


2- "HAND HYGIENE" — wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place. If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.


3- "SMOTHER YOUR COUGH" — cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough/sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw the used tissues in the trash and immediately wash your hands.


4- STAY HOME if you’re sick, except to get medical care


5- SEEK HELP if you have a fever, cough AND shortness of breath. Be sure to call ahead and alert the staff if you think you may have COVID-19. This will help the office/ER protect themselves and other patients prior to your arrival.


Please do all you can to keep yourself, family and loved ones safe during this uncertain time. Feel free to contact us with any questions, and we will do our best to provide any assistance we can.


Stay Safe and Be Well,

Harold I Laroche, MD, MBA, CPE, MSJ
