COVID-19 Support

The coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to be a rapidly developing situation. The well-being of our employees and their families is our priority, and your Synopsys benefits and resources can help support you as you navigate this unique situation.

Important Reminders: 

  • Keep up with the latest COVID-19 news and advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.
  • You can find the latest information on our response to COVID-19 on the Synopsys COVID-19 website.
  • Your Site Leader will provide site- and location-specific updates.
  • In urgent situations, we’ll use Synopsys Alert to connect with you. Make sure your contact information in Employee Central is up to date.
  • If you learn you've come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, Synopsys Security is available 24/7 and can guide you through a risk assessment. Email them at security@synopsys.com.
If You Need Medical Care

Dial a doctor. With most of us being urged to stay at home as much as possible, it’s not easy—or even possible—to see our regular doctors if we don’t feel well. Virtual medical care is a great alternative. It allows you to connect with a doctor from the comfort and safety of your home. 

  • UnitedHealthcare members: With UHC Virtual Visits, you can chat with a doctor 24/7 by phone, tablet, or video, and even get prescriptions. You can pay with a credit card, a debit card, or your Fidelity HSA debit card. The payment will apply toward your deductible and out-of-pocket maximum. Pre-registration is recommended but not required.

If you’re a Crossover Health member, you can meet with a doctor via telephone or video conferencing. You can also send a message to your doctor from the portal.

  • Kaiser members: Through Kaiser’s virtual medical care services, you can schedule a phone appointment with your doctor, connect with them via email, or have an on-demand video call with an on-call physician. All encounters are noted in your medical record.
If You’re Feeling Stressed

Talk to someone. Everyone has different reactions to public health emergencies. People may experience a wide range of emotions with varying amounts of intensity. If you find your thoughts, emotions, or behaviors are making it difficult to function in your daily life, you may want to talk through your feelings with a professional. 

Lyra Health, our partner for mental health benefits, offers fast access to coaches and therapists via live video. During this time when we’re encouraged to practice social distancing, Lyra allows you to find support and receive care while practicing preventive measures to stay healthy.

Connect with Lyra by calling (844) 856-2213, emailing care@lyrahealth.com, or visiting their website (must be accessed via Chrome).

You can also get some useful mental health tips from Lyra’s Coping with the Coronavirus Epidemic guide.

Stay focused on fitness. Your total well-being is very important, especially under the difficult circumstances we’re currently facing. We want to make sure you get up and move, eat healthy, connect with friends and loved ones, and tend to your overall well-being needs during these challenging times. A great way to do that is to join our new Designed for Wellness challenges:
