COVID-19 AGENCY UPDATE

As of today, 4/7/20, Ohio’s “Stay-at-Home” has been extended through May 1st, 2020. Here’s a summary of where we are today with the Covid-19 crisis:

  • Our office is closed, but we’ve never been more available.
  • Wilma Valentine Childcare is operating as a temporary pandemic childcare center for families that have parents who are listed as essential staff.
  • Almost every Shelby County Board of DD (SCBDD) staff has been deemed essential, as are all Direct Support Professionals (DSP’s) who provide in-home care.
  • Early Intervention staff, Shelby Hills Preschool Teachers, Service and Support Administrators and all supporting SCBDD staff are continuing support virtually.
  • We continue working to attain Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and supplies for sanitizing in-home environments to distribute to DSP’s and SCBDD staff when it becomes necessary.
  • We are working with the Sidney-Shelby County Health Department on prioritizing when to give out PPE.
