As we continue to respond to the impact of Coronavirus COVID-19, IAHD continues to follow guidance from NYC and State Departments of Health (DOH) and the CDC and are closely following their recommendations.
The Day Hab Programs are closed effective today March 17th 3pm. Staff will be redeployed to work with the people we support in their homes where possible. As more info is received, we are taking additional steps to safeguard individuals and staff alike.
Therefore, it is necessary for staff to be available to work with them. We continue to take all precautions to protect staff and those they care for through additional sanitizing and education about Coronavirus COVID-19.
Our offices will remain open and adjustments will be made to ensure employee safety. We ask that all staff who are sick remain home. Even after the closing of programs, we request that if any staff is showing symptoms of illness or has had contact with someone under investigation for, or diagnosed with the Coronavirus (COVID 19), please immediately inform HR.
During these challenging times, we are working together for the people we support, and their families as well as staff. We will keep you informed when changes occur as they are occurring quickly.
