Coronavirus News

News about the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, with new information reported daily. DePaul’s senior leadership team is carefully monitoring federal, state, and county resources closely.

DePaul has detailed, specific emergency plans in place that prioritize the health and safety of the individuals we serve, the individuals we employ and the continuity of our operations. We have prepared for episodes of infectious diseases and other illnesses that spread easily, especially among older or vulnerable populations.

DePaul staff members are trained in infection control practices and follow strict protocols based on that training. These protocols include properly washing hands frequently and cleaning and disinfecting frequently-touched objects and hard surfaces. These practices have been in place to combat the influenza virus and will continue as we monitor the spread of the coronavirus.

As we navigate this challenge, we remain focused on providing exceptional care and service for those we serve as well as our business partners. This includes sharing regular updates and information and taking any precautions required to limit the spread of illness or misinformation.

DePaul will continue to update on any news or emerging issues as needed, however, if you have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact DePaul at depaulqm@depaul.org.
