The Center recognizes its responsibility to protect the health of the people we serve, our employees and members of the greater community. This protocol has been developed to be followed addressing on-site visitation by outside family members and service providers (Care Managers, etc.) as per OPWDD guidelines. Service recipients and their families will be expected to follow these guidelines in order to insure safe and enjoyable visits. Specifically, steps in implementing this protocol include, but are not limited to:
This protocol is strictly in the context of on-site visitation by non-agency persons; particularly family members, and is in no way inclusive of any other expectations, such as residents leaving the facility grounds and/or overnight visits and returning, on-site visitation by other agency support personnel or vendors outside of already established protocols.
This visitation protocol will need to be suspended for any program location that becomes quarantined due to any health-related issue.
