In response to the virus, the agency launched additional innovative programs including the Safe+Care Promise infection prevention program to ensure the availability of safe in-person care.

Additionally, St. Croix Hospice staff have been COVID-19 tested weekly, and clinical teams have now also received the COVID-19 vaccine to enable them to provide the safest possible care for vulnerable hospice patients.
