President Trump earlier today signed into law another interim COVID-19 relief bill, which includes an additional $310 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program for small businesses. We strongly encourage those practices that have not already reached out to their banking partner and applied for these second-round funds to do so immediately, as funds are expected to run out quickly. Practices seeking support with this application may reach out to Curi partners Medical Management Associates, Inc., or Smith Anderson, as part of our offer of a free practice management consultation session of up to one hour. For MMA, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and for Smith Anderson, contact Robert Shaw at email@example.com or 919-260-2720. Please identify the name of your Curi-affiliated practice when you reach out.
All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
