Our Roadmap for Reopening

Decisions regarding the reopening of day programs will be based on four guiding decision factors.

Visitor Policy Updated Beginning July 13

Beginning the week of July 13, case managers and BCs will be allowed to conduct needed meetings with participants at Easterseals Arc. However, we encourage the continued use of electronic meetings. If in-person meetings are necessary, meetings conducted outside in the garden area or at picnic tables are preferred. If this is not a possibility, case managers and BCs may meet with participants in the building. They must schedule these meetings in advance and book a meeting room. The meeting rooms are as follows:

No other visitors will be allowed in the buildings. Staff should continue to use email or the drop box on the side of the building for HR or business office paperwork. HR will continue conducting interviews via telephone and Microsoft Teams. Transportation will continue the procedure of not entering the building. This includes families picking up their loved ones.

We will continue social distancing, the mandatory use of masks, screening questions, temperature checks, and strict cleaning guidelines. All meeting rooms must be wiped down after every meeting.

We will continue to monitor CDC and Department of Health guidelines and update this plan accordingly.
