Infection Control Education

The MCDPH Health Education Empowerment Program exists to assist long-term facilities with any COVID-19 related infection control educational needs for staff and support staff at your site.

The MCDPH-Medical Reserve Corps Infection Control Team is available to support your needs during this unprecedented time and provide guidance to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 throughout our communities.

Our team will visit your site and provide guidance to any staff or support staff on infection control procedures and how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 based upon the needs of the facility.

Appointments will be made, at your convenience and specific to your needs (via a survey). Please call 602-506-6767 or email Doreen.Zannis@maricopa.gov.
