Enhancing Precautions

posted on Tuesday, March 17, 2020

As we continue to monitor the rapidly evolving details of the COVID-19, we want to ensure you we are committed to the health and safety of the people we serve, our workforce, and the communities in which we live.  

The following are updates we have made to services as of March 17 - until further notice:

  • All EPI locations are limited to pre-arranged/essential visits ONLY
  • The Representative Payee office will be closed to all visitors - info sent to those supported by this service
  • Transportation services will be closing after services on 3/17
  • Day Habilitation services will be closing after services on 3/17
  • Our More Than You See fundraiser on April 3, is canceled (we sincerely want to thank our sponsors and donors for continuing to support our greatest needs) - info sent to ticket holders and all involved in supporting the event

We are doing our part to enhance precautions while continuing to provide critical services. 

Staff are continuing to follow important proactive measures to prevent the spread of contagious illnesses while supporting the people they serve in doing the same.

  • Limiting non-essential travel and community outings
  • Limiting the number of people gathering
  • Increasing the frequency of cleaning within our offices and individual's homes.  Especially frequently touched surfaces - remotes, light switches, door knobs.

We can't do it alone. We ask that you work along with us to keep everyone safe.

If you are experiencing symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), follow the CDC’s direction to stay home and contact your health care provider for further instruction. Please call in advance before visiting homes. Do not visit if sick.

Practice the following to reduce the spread of germs.

  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your upper arm/elbow.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If hand sanitizer must be used as a substitute, ensure the hand sanitizer contains at least 60-95% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Increase personal space (6-10 ft) as much as you can. Consider activities in groups carefully. Don't share food, beverages, writing utensils, etc.

Let's stay informed, together.
