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:

  • All employee travel is suspended
  • All student travel, including community outings and home visits in high-traffic, social environments (such as restaurants, theatres and so forth), have been postponed and we have replaced these activities with other fun indoor and outdoor activities, all while practicing responsible social distancing
  • Independent Living Students are welcome on campus
  • All parent/family campus and off-campus visits will be postponed and we respectfully ask you to reschedule these to a later date to reduce the chance of spreading the virus in our communities
  • All staff arriving for their shift are assessed to be completely free of symptoms and have not traveled to restricted areas
  • Any students newly enrolling must go through a thorough medical evaluation to screen for symptoms of the virus
  • 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

There have been very few confirmed cases in Klamath Falls or the Rogue Valley

Despite data showing younger people – and those without chronic illness, particularly respiratory – rarely get very sick, we are still taking more extensive steps out of an abundance of caution and to do our part in limiting the potential spread.

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.
