Tell us your story about COVID-19
If you have fallen ill and are unable to work due to the novel coronavirus, CAPT would like you to share your personal story. These are difficult, unprecedented times, especially for a workforce deemed essential, a workforce whose jobs cannot be conducted in the safe confines of their homes. Each day you report to work, you risk additional exposure—whether that exposure is pumping gas to drive yourself to work, standing in the health-check screening line to report to work, or simply being near coworkers, patients, inmates or clients.
The spread of this virus will inevitably affect our profession and our members. If you become infected and would like to share your story with CAPT, please reach out to your local chapter or CAPT Outreach Editor Christine Caro at firstname.lastname@example.org Your confidentiality will be respected and maintained.
CAPT wants to hear your story and experience, so we can better advocate for you and your coworkers. CAPT wants to know when you became ill, how you became sick (was it work-related?), how management responded, details of your leave time, the effect of your illness on your family, and when you were able to report back to work. Most importantly, CAPT wants to know what it can do to help your situation and those who follow. Please do not contact CAPT until your health has stabilized. Maintaining health and wellness is your top priority, especially for those who depend on you.
