Greetings to our WorkAbilities Team!
We received notice from DHS Licensing on July 12th that we could begin to invite back clients who live in licensed residential programs and who meet screening and safety criteria outlined by DHS and MDH beginning on Monday, July 13th.
We’ve been reaching out to clients, and their teams, who don’t have any known ‘at risk’ factors as outlined by the MDH and CDC and who have the ability to self-manage social distancing and other hygiene and safety protocols and who don’t require prolonged close physical assistance for personal cares or other activities of daily living.
DHS continues to set parameters for our provision of services for the safety of both clients and the staff who support them. We continue to be limited to a 3-hour service day with 10 or fewer people in a designated program area. In addition, we cannot exceed 50 clients and staff on site during the limited service day.
We’ve received contact from several clients and team members who are excited about returning to program and want to resume some semblance of routine in an environment they are familiar with. Trust that we are doing our best to bring back as many clients and staff we feel we are safely able to at this time. If you have questions about a specific client returning please contact their assigned Planning Manager or feel free to contact me directly.
We hope to begin serving more individuals with a wider range of needs as our state and DHS continues to “turn the dial” based upon current guidance at the time.
We ask for your continued patience as we work to rebuild our program with both client and employee safety being the foremost consideration in that planning!
