Deerfield is paying very close attention to the current health situation that our country and the world is facing. We want to share with you what we are doing to safeguard our community and help everyone be prepared.
Using information and guidance from World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Public Health, we have adapted Deerfield’s existing policies and procedures on outbreak preparedness and infection prevention and control to address COVID-19, specifically. We are consistently reviewing our interdepartmental operational procedures and are making changes as necessary to reflect updated public health guidance. Our Infection Preventionist and Medical Director are actively seeking to remain informed of the COVID-19 latest with the goal of ensuring that Deerfield’s approach considers all that is known about this novel pathogen and its epidemiology.
The proliferation of COVID-19 is an unprecedented global phenomenon, the trajectory and ultimate consequences of which we cannot begin to reasonably estimate. With the safety and wellbeing of Deerfield’s residents and staff as our primary concern, we are hopeful for the best but preparing for the worst. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
