Canceling a Trip Due to COVID-19
The safety of our members and driver providers is always our top priority. If a member has a confirmed case of Coronavirus (COVID-19), is exhibiting flu-like symptoms, or has been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, and is using transportation for a non-urgent need, instead of transporting the member, please ask the member to call our “health plan hotline” at 1-858-905-5695 which will redirect them to a nurse’s line for immediate assistance. Please use the COVID-19 cancellation reason when you cancel the trip. These trips will be reported to the health plan to help them track the impact of the COVID-19 virus.
If the member is experiencing life-threatening symptoms and needs emergency assistance, please advise the member to call 911.
Please take the following personal precautions to stay healthy:
- Wash your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. For more info on the best way to wash your hands, please visit the CDC’s website.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, including passenger door handles, storage compartments, overhead handles, cup holders, etc. after every trip.
- If available, offer hand sanitizer or disinfecting wipes to the member.
- Sanitize your car keys and cell phone after you stop driving for the day.
- Changing into a fresh pair of clothing and immediately washing your clothing in the washer after you stop driving for the day.
