COVID-19 Response

Dragonfly Transitions takes the care and trust of our employees, families and students very seriously. We continue to monitor the global spread of the recent coronavirus. With nearly 20 years of experience, infection control is part of our everyday operations. We are committed, at all times, to create an environment of care and safety. We are accepting new students with careful screening and process.

As the landscape of this current health situation has been rapidly changing, we are committed to keeping you abreast of all developments at Dragonfly with frequency and honesty. Dragonfly has implemented several measures to help protect our employees, families and students. Dragonfly is part of a broader national mental health umbrella, Embark Behavioral Health. For the past couple of weeks, Embark has had an active, multi-disciplinarian, Coronavirus Task Force, comprised of program doctors and nurses, clinicians and program operators. We have been and will continue to be fully prepared.

After consulting with health experts in our field, doctors, nurses and other programs, Dragonfly has implemented the following measures. We will continue to assess and adjust accordingly:

  • Student travel and campus visitation is being closely monitored on a case by case basis:
    • Students and families traveling will be assessed and monitored for symptoms before and after travel
    • Visitors to campus are currently not allowed inside student residences and will be masked during their visit.
    • Staff and students returning from any type of travel, as well as newly admitted students, will be masked for 10 days upon returning to Dragonfly.
  • Any students newly enrolling must go through a thorough medical evaluation to screen for symptoms of the virus.
  • All staff arriving for their shift are assessed to be completely free of symptoms and have not traveled to restricted areas.
  • Independent Living Students are welcome on campus while wearing masks
  • We are confident in the precautionary measures we are taking and should any student at Dragonfly demonstrate symptoms of being ill, we have protocols to enact a supportive quarantine of that student
  • In the event a student is quarantined, families will receive a notification as soon as possible. We know that practicing social distancing will help us decrease the likelihood of a quarantine

The state of Oregon is also responding quickly to ensure that we remain very low on the list of states who are experiencing a rise in positive COVID-19 cases. There is a statewide mask mandate for all Oregonians requiring masks to be worn inside all public spaces and also outdoors when 6ft distancing cannot be maintained. Restaurants, personal service providers and retail stores have put strict protocol in place to allow for social distancing, increased disinfecting practices, and have limited hours.

We have successfully been able to have all staff and students tested when indicated and have multiple testing sites available to us. At this point, no Dragonfly staff or students have tested positive for COVID-19.

We sincerely thank you for your trust in us during this complex time. We appreciate your understanding and your support of the measures we are taking to ensure your child and all other students at Dragonfly continue to be and feel safe, emotionally, mentally and physically. Student and staff spirits have been high.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out directly if you have additional questions or concerns.
