In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), The Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) has directed all providers to temporarily suspend operations of site-based day programs beginning and suspend visitation to our residential programs until further notice.
There are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in any of our programs at this time. We continue to monitor all guidance from local, state and federal agencies, and will stay in communication with you about our response as the situation develops.
We realize the impact suspension of our day programs has on our families, staff and the people we support; however, it is critical we take action to limit the spread of illness. We appreciate your understanding as we work together to ensure the health and safety of our community.
We are making every effort to minimize the disruption of services and the emotional impact of evolving restrictions for those supported under unprecedented circumstances. Currently, our primary focus is sustaining the health and safety of everyone in our programs.
The following are programs are suspended until further notice: Day Habilitation, Pre-vocational Programs, Supported Employment, Recreation, Community Habilitation, Linwood Center Services, Article 16 Services, Support Brokers, and Respite Programs.
