Updates on Day Services and Health Care
Starting today, our COVID-19 updates will be shared with our weekly Notes from The Arc. This doesn’t change our updates’ relevance, as uncertain and atypical times continue!
Our day-employment services offered by MassHealth and the Department of Developmental Services will change significantly as re-opening occurs. This is due to funding as much as it is due to distance limitations caused by the pandemic – limitation in vehicles and limitations in buildings. We know that COVID-19 is transferred through close contact – many of the participants have other medical conditions that need to be considered and others cannot safely practice social distance.
