In cooperation with our community partners, the CSB has maintained contractual and direct oversight of Developmental Disability Services (DD) support coordination, case management, residential and employment and day services during the COVID-19-related challenges and restrictions. As you are likely aware, program operations have been hampered, if not completely halted, by pandemic-related challenges. These include routinely updated emergency operations guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS), state, county and Health Department COVID-19 guidelines for staff and participants on:
- Securing and ensuring proper use of personal protection equipment (PPE).
- COVID-19 exposures.
- Program closures.
- Infection surges.
With this frequently changing landscape, consistent operations and communication have been challenging. The following information, contacts and frequently asked questions has been developed to assist DD service participants, families and the community about the current status of programs and services.
