DUE TO RECENT EVENTS SURROUNDING THE CORONA VIRUS, EFFECTIVE TUESDAY MARCH 17TH, NON-ESSENTIAL SERVICES INCLUDING HOME AND COMMUNITY, COMMUNITY SERVICES, BEHAVIOR AND THERAPEUTIC SUPPORTS ARE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. ESSENTIAL SERVICES ARE THOSE SERVICES NECESSARY TO MAINTAIN THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR CLIENTS.
WE ARE REACHING OUT TO ALL FAMILIES REGARDING THIS DECISION.
THE FOLLOWING ARE PERSONAL PREVENTATIVE MEASURES AND BEST PRACTICES REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS AS RECOMMENDED BY THE CDC (CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL):
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (countertops, cell phone, home phone, etc.) using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
- Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask. At this time, the CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19. Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (sing Happy Birthday twice), especially after going to the bathroom; before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
