Navigating COVID-19

Lowering risk in schools, work, and sports.


To return to our places of business, our schools, and to resume playing our sports, we need effective strategies to move forward, to lower the risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, despite its presence in our communities. One-to-One Health offers the maneuvers that help businesses and schools move forward in this pandemic.

What We’ve Done

Since the national emergency was declared on March 13, 2020, One to One Health staff has been advising businesses, factories, offices, and schools on pandemic management. We developed protocols before there were any, applying the habits and practices that we use daily in the medical office and in the operating room to daily life.

The more consults we did, the more we learned, allowing us to expand our practical knowledge. Applying scientific evidence-based practices to daily tasks: going to work, walking in your office, working at a desk, eating lunch…we created best practices and “playbooks” for each of our consultants. To local small business and schools, we’ve provided sound, practical, and accurate advice. 

Proven Practices

We have learned that the skills of partnership, problem solving, and a “get it done” philosophy is what drives our community. The common thread for our COVID-19 consultants has been a desire to get in front, to have a plan, to move forward with the lowest risk. They called on us for the medical science, and we were thrilled to participate. And we are prepared to take on more.

It can be done. Our consultants benefit from the broad experience the COVID-19 team at One to One Health has developed, learning along the way, and maintaining a belief that low risk activities start with personal responsibility. Not one day goes by where a new discovery in the behavior or treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infections and its prevention doesn’t change our advice to our clients. And we stay up to date.
