In reponse to COVID-19, JPHSA is currently open for normal hours of operation, but JPHSA’s JeffCare Health Center locations have changed hours of operation. For details, see below. We look forward to calmly continuing to provide the community with the services and supports they need during this trying time. To do this, we have implemented a number of protective health and safety measures.
Out of caution and to ease concerns, an increased cleaning and disinfection schedule is in place at our facilities. We have cancelled community meetings and restricted unnecessary access to our buildings by the public. We are also actively screening staff and individuals served in our health centers. In addition, mandatory social distancing strategies are in effect in our lobby areas and throughout the agency.
