Dear Clients and Friends,
We all are experiencing the impact of COVID-19. From grocery shopping at stores with empty shelves, a devastating stock market, business closings, all forms of entertainment shutting down, and lots of concerns about how many are infected, and how many have died. At my mother-in-law’s independent living facility, there are four residents diagnosed with Covid-19, as of this morning. So Coronavirus is real and impacting all of us dramatically, with some more severe than others.
In response, we have provisioned our office space with appropriate sanitizing and maintain a supply of hand sanitizers for those who come to the office. Notwithstanding these on-premises precautions, we already have experienced several clients who need legal assistance but are unable for health protection reasons to visit our office. So far, we have been able to keep open our main office in Jacksonville. This morning we received notice that our Palm Coast office will be closed until April 4, 2020, at the earliest.
In response, we are now providing consultations by telephone and videoconferencing, at least for the indefinite future.
If you need information about your advance directives (powers of attorney, health care advance directives, HIPAA releases, etc.), we can expedite providing information or additional or new documents for you. One thing for consideration by those of you with minor children or grandchildren is obtaining a Designation of Health Care Surrogate for a Minor Child. That document allows a parent of a minor child to designate someone who will have the legal authority to make health care decisions for your child; in the event, the parent is not able to make such decisions. Often, grandparents assume they have the legal authority to make medical decisions for their grandchildren. Grandparents do not have that legal authority without a designation of health care surrogate for a minor child in place before making the decision. A HIPAA Release and Authorization is another valuable document for when you want family members to have access to otherwise protected information from your health care providers.
If you would like to schedule a telephone call or videoconference to discuss any of these matters, or others, please give us a call. We’ll make every effort to respond as quickly as reasonably possible.
Our best wishes to all of you to stay well until the Coronavirus has run its course.
