Please read below for continued alerts pertaining to COVID-19, and make sure to check back frequently for new updates as they are made available.

As we continue to respond to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), please be assured that we are taking a proactive approach to protect the health and wellness of the people we support and our staff.

We need your assurance that social distancing, use of masks and other face covering, meticulous attention to hand washing, and proper cleaning and disinfection will be practiced. You must contact the home at least a day before when possible and speak with the Residence Manager to set up the home visit.

To minimize possible risk during any off-site visit, exposure to members of different households and to public places, in general, should be done with caution and on a limited basis. Good hygiene must be practiced and safe social distancing should be maintained, whenever possible. Consistent with Executive Order 202.17, masks must be worn in public whenever social distancing cannot be maintained, to the extent they can be medically tolerated.

An individual may participate in family visits only if he/she is not suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, is not under any quarantine or isolation requirements, and passes a health screen and temperature check immediately prior to leaving the residence. Our staff will share additional expectations regarding parameters for home visits, and transportation to and from visits. You will be expected to complete a Home Visit form prior to departure and upon return to the residence.

The agency reserves the right to prohibit, limit, restrict or discontinue any visit for failure to adhere to the standards outlined above or has the potential to put individuals or staff at risk.

Thank you, as always, for your partnership, patience and understanding as we work to provide supports and services for your family member in these unprecedented circumstances.
