DCBDD Update Regarding COVID-19
April 3, 2020
To the people we serve, their families, and providers:

The Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities continues to monitor the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Yesterday, Governor Mike DeWine extended the stay-at-home order through May 1, 2020 to continue to slow the spread of COVID-19. As an essential service, DCBDD will continue supporting the people we serve, their families and providers and work diligently to ensure there are no gaps in care.

We are committed to supporting our providers through this challenging time. We appreciate their unwavering dedication to supporting people in Delaware county and we cannot thank them enough. To support providers in continuing this amazing work, we are offering assistance with supplies and resources whenever possible. Working together is our best form of defense against a pandemic like this and we are fortunate to be in such a compassionate community.

Providing you consistent and regular communication is important to us. Please continue to visit our dedicated web page ( www.dcbdd.org/covid19 ) for the latest resources and updates regarding COVID-19.

As we navigate these uncertain times, please know that the Delaware County Board of DD is here for you and ready to help. Please feel free to contact your SSA or Service Coordinator with any questions related to DCBDD’s response to COVID-19.
Thank you for your continued trust as we work through this crisis as a community.
Stay well,

Kristine Hodge,
#DSPHero Campaign
We want to share our appreciation for the amazing direct support professionals (DSPs) and the incredible ways they support people with disabilities. We have launched the DSP Hero campaign to convey how grateful we are for their continued support.

Governor DeWine asked Ohioans to fly their flag to stand united with one another during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Sharing his sentiment, we ask you to print this “flag” and stick it in your front window or share on social media to show your support for the incredible work our DSPs are doing. We hope you will post a picture of your flag on social media, wherever it may be hung, and use the #DSPHero.

We have also developed a profile frame for Facebook to help raise awareness and spread our support even further. Click on the link below to add the frame to your profile picture to share your appreciation.
