We are preparing our consultants for situations that may arise from the COVID-19 outbreak.

Communication

Remote Work

We understand that over the next few weeks or possibly months, the United States and the world may experience partial or total lockdown to “flatten the curve”. We are communicating with our customers and complying with their specific guidelines around remote work for certain job functions. The Rangam Cares team will continue working closely with consultants to ensure smooth communication and minimal disruption to the business.

Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA), 1993

For those who may not get the option to continue working since their contingent jobs inhibit remote work for any reason, we will provide them with all the necessary information and resources to help them meet their immediate needs including any loss of income. We will be sharing their local and state resources such as FMLA-related resources available to them by their local and state officials.

Containment Policy

Consultants who are at-risk, symptomatic, or have been in contact with an individual who is infected or symptomatic, or meet the below requirements, should reach out to us at rangamcares@rangam.com. Such individuals are asked not to report to work, seek medical care, and notify us immediately.

  • A consultant who is diagnosed with COVID-19
  • A consultant who lives in the same household as, or is an intimate partner of, or who has been providing care in a non-healthcare setting for a person with symptomatic, laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 infection with or without using the CDC-recommended precautions for home care and home isolation
  • A consultant who has recently traveled to and/or returned from China, Italy, Iran, Spain, Germany, South Korea, India or any other country where confirmed COVID-19 cases have been reported
  • A consultant having close contact with a person with symptomatic, laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 infection
  • A consultant who was seated on an aircraft within 6 feet of a traveler with symptomatic, laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 infection
  • A consultant who was in an indoor environment (e.g., a classroom, hospital waiting room) with a person with symptomatic, laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 infection for a prolonged period but not meeting the definition of close contact

Travel Policy

At this time, all international and domestic travel has been suspended temporarily. We believe that these proactive and precautionary actions will help minimize any unnecessary risk to our employees during their daily work and extend our full support for public health efforts to contain the virus.

If you have traveled to or through high-risk countries within the past two months, or have been exposed to an individual who has traveled internationally to high-risk countries, please notify us immediately at rangamcares@rangam.com or HealthAlert@rangam.com.

Visitors Policy

Any visitors, staff, or consultants who have recently traveled to China, Italy, Iran, Spain, Germany, South Korea, India or any other country where confirmed COVID-19 cases have been reported, and/or have come in contact with anyone who they know to be infected, may not be allowed to return to the office, visit, or work at our customers’ sites for 14 days after their return or their last contact with an infected individual. They may return only if they’re asymptomatic following this 14-day period. We’ve also postponed any in-person meetings at our offices until further notice.

We encourage our consultants to communicate with us through HealthAlert@rangam.com where we’ll be sharing the latest updates and public health advisories from the CDC and the WHO.

As we are all learning how to live and work in a world that’s looking different from what it used to do a few months ago, we must understand that this is a time to take the necessary precautions and prepare for the fight ahead. It is when our collective support for each other can win the battle for the future of humanity. We appreciate your continued support.

  • Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China.

  • The virus that caused COVID-19 most likely emerged from an animal source but is now spreading person to person. The virus is said to spread between people in close contact with another (within 6 ft) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It’s also possible to get COVID-19 through touching surfaces or objects that has the virus on it and then touching the mouth, nose or eyes.

  • People can help protect themselves from respiratory illness with everyday preventive actions:

    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
