COVID-19 Interactive Timeline

Making decisions early saved lives

The timeline tells our story.

The COVID-19 pandemic is the most significant health crisis this country has experienced in more than a century. Jefferson Health, and the nation, are managing through a host of coronavirus unknowns — with grit and determination. Among the busiest health systems in the nation to care for COVID-19-positive patients, Jefferson Health knows one thing for sure: we planned well (calling upon past experience with H1N1 and Ebola), acted quickly, and courageously made critical decisions—early—that are saving lives. 

The timeline above offers a view into Jefferson’s critical decision points that have enabled us to deliver safe care to our patients during a pandemic, while protecting our students and staff.
