JeffCare Kicks Off COVID-19 Testing

JeffCare launched its COVID-19 testing last week thanks to the efforts of many hard-working staff members. JeffCare will continue to provide this essential service to Jefferson Parish residents through at least September. All community members one year and older are welcome—first come, first served (while supplies last) with no appointment necessary.

“We want everyone to have access to COVID-19 testing, regardless of their income or health insurance coverage,” said Julie Shaw, JeffCare Division Director. “We’ve got the tests and the tent. We’ve got the dedicated and compassionate staff. Now we just need to yell it from the rooftops so people know we’re here!”

Help spread the word to individuals served and help prevent the spread of the virus in Jefferson Parish. An informational flyer with testing dates and times can be found here.

JeffCare Zaps COVID-19 In Its Tracks

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, disinfection has never been more vital to healthcare providers. JeffCare has found an innovative solution to safely and simply continue providing services: the UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer.

Harnessing the power of light, the UVDI-360 radiates germicidal UV-C rays to kill more than 35 pathogens, including coronavirus. This sleek, mobile tower beams a pillar of bright blue light to disinfect entire rooms—including floors, beds, counters, cabinets, toilets and other high-touch surfaces—in just 5-10 minutes.

“We’ve been wanting to move towards UV light disinfection for a while now to augment our cleaning regimen,” said Julie Shaw, JeffCare Division Director. “With COVID-19 concerns, there’s no better time than the present to move into the future.”
