“ At Vero our first priority is the health and well being of our travelers, employees and the communities we serve. Our commitment to anyone who travels with us: If you are on assignment with Vero and are furloughed due to workplace exposure to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and are quarantined, we will pay your guaranteed hourly wages as well as your meals and lodging stipends for up to 14 days. If you have insurance coverage through Vero, we will continue your insurance so you can have peace of mind while in quarantine. We are so thankful for you and recognize your sacrifice as you leave your own families and friends to take care of your neighboring communities. You are appreciated and our heroes! Vero is here to support you anyway we can!"

– Alescia Glossner, Chief Operations Officer

We appreciate every nurse who wants to help during this time. However, your current facility is depending on you to provide patient care to their community. If you leave your current contract early you put your fellow colleagues at risk during this crisis.

We will continue to work together as a team to ensure you get what you need most to succeed.

Healthcare professionals and facilities can stay up to date with the latest guidance from the CDC by visiting the website’s information for Healthcare Professionals & Healthcare Facilities pages.
