We at Easterseals are growing increasingly alarmed by the seemingly exponential rate of growth of COVID in our community and beyond. The explosion of cases has not bypassed us here at Easterseals. COVID has impacted our staff, our neighbors, friends and families, and our consumers.
Out of an abundance of caution, and in an attempt to protect everyone in the Easterseals organization – those who work with and for Easterseals, and those we serve – we will operate at an almost 100% virtual model starting Monday, November 23 and running at least through Friday, January 1.
All services will be offered virtually only, if they can be. If they cannot and they are not absolutely critical, they will be cancelled. Some specific services may be offered in-person on a case-by-case basis if necessary.
Staff are all working remotely. Our center in Reading (90 George Street) and office in Allentown (1501 Lehigh Street) are closed to visitors. Please use the mailbox next to the door to drop off vouchers or other documents.
We will keep monitoring the situation and changing our approach as needed.
The way we operate and the way our lives look has changed dramatically, but our mission and drive to impact the lives of those we serve has not wavered. We remain in contact with our consumers and families by phone, email and teleconference to provide support, strategies for caring for their children and information about available community resources. If there is something you need, please feel free to contact us by sending an email or using the contact numbers provided on our program webpages.
You can keep up to date on information issued from the Governor in the Guide to Responding to COVID-19 available on his website.
