Q&A with Stanford Health Care Leaders
Despite the current surge in cases, we are prepared and ready for each and every patient. We have the ability to increase our hospital’s capacity, if needed.
We have proven that we can safely treat patients and protect them from COVID-19 transmission. It is safe to come to Stanford Health Care.
There are a lot of reasons to be optimistic about vaccine and treatment research. We hope to have solid results by the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021.
We are expanding our testing and access to care as well as looking into future vaccine distribution to target populations that have been hardest hit by this virus.
We recommend that parents of schoolchildren become engaged with their school districts on virus safety for the new school year. The American Academy of Pediatrics has more information for families at aap.org.
