One Year: A Look Back

COVID-19 Reflections

Thinking about the impact of COVID-19 can stir a variety of emotions. For some, the past year has brought us closer to family while in quarantine, taught us how to stay active without a gym, or shown us new hobbies that spark joy. For many of us, COVID-19 has also brought feelings of isolation, pain, anger, sorrow or even numbness. Whether we want to admit it or not, we’re fundamentally different than we were one year ago. But we’ve learned we are resilient.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

UF Health Jacksonville is prepared to respond to cases of Coronavirus Disease 2019, or COVID-19, as we have well-established protocols for addressing outbreaks of this nature. We follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, and Florida Department of Health guidelines for identification and management of any outbreak and have procedures in place to care for any patient who meets CDC screening criteria. This includes symptoms of respiratory illness (fever, cough, shortness of breath), international travel in the past 14 days or close contact with someone showing these symptoms.

We want to remind the community the best way to stay healthy is through hand washing with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds, or by using alcohol-based sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol. Another way is to cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue followed by hand washing.
