The team considers themselves a pivotal link between the recommendations and information presented by CDC and the local residents, working to ensure that information doesn’t get lost in translation.
“The strike team comes to reinforce some of those ideas, and we can help out,” said Mike DeFranco, of the Orange Coounty Health Department.
When out on a call, the team does its best to check rooming situations and safety protocols. On an average day, the team sees anywhere from 4 to 11 facilities. And they always follow up with each facility afterwards.
The strike team has a main list of facilities they’re currently checking. At this point they’re just making sure to perform wellness checks.
