Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
Jefferson Health’s team of physicians and health care professionals include national experts who have decades of experience in caring for patients with infectious diseases and in activating comprehensive, response management plans when public health threats develop. Our team is well prepared for 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) diagnoses in our region and is focused on the health and well-being of our patients and employees. We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) as well as the state and city departments of health in our region.
The following is intended to provide you with an overview of COVID-19 and links to CDC resources for additional information.
Please note: If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, you can use JeffConnect® for a telehealth consult with a Jefferson doctor anytime, anywhere through your cell phone, tablet, or computer with a webcam. JeffConnect® uses the latest video technology to deliver face-to-face care and consultation to you, wherever you are.
All Jefferson employees returning from international travel must reach out to their local Jefferson Occupational Health Network (JOHN) 215-955-6835 office prior to returning to work. During off hours you may contact our JeffConnect telehealth service.
