NCACH joined the Incident Command systems of each of our local health jurisdictions (LHJ) since announcing our decision to pause Medicaid Transformation Project activities on March 22, 2020. We have been working with each LHJ (Chelan-Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan Counties) assisting with their individual community mitigation response needs, including developing tools for communities practicing social isolation (like the “Hello Neighbor” postcard below), providing outreach, and crafting messaging to encourage our communities to “Stay Home, Stay Safe, Stay Healthy.”
(Keep an eye out for these postcards and door-hangers in a community near you! Interested in getting some to share in your community? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org)
We’ve also been working closely with our local health districts to mobilize the production and collection of donated homemade (or non-manufactured) personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gowns and masks.
NCACH will continue to support each LHJ’s Incident Command system as long as our help is needed.
