EPI workforce, health care professionals invited to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through community partnership.
We have been advocating quite persistently for our workforce and persons served to be included in early distribution plans. While we do not yet have official word, we do see positive movement and will share what we believe to be true today (please know any or all of this information could change).
EPI is actively working with public policy officials to ensure our workforce and persons served are a top priority when it comes to offering the vaccine. Now's a good time to start having conversations with persons served and their supports to make a plan when the vaccine becomes available.
The holidays are quickly approaching and with that in mind we would like to offer a few suggestions along with resources to help keep you safe while connecting with your loved ones this year.

Let's talk about face masks - how to properly wear one, when to wear one, and why is it so important?
Bringing you a "behind the scenes" look at how it's going with each COVID-19 precaution we are taking. Today we'd like to discuss social distancing - what is it, why is it so important, and how is it going?
