Medina County Providers
Weekly Information
August 26, 2020
We have a dedicated helpline for providers to call should they have questions or immediate needs. Providers can reach us at 330-321-3585.
Masks Are Required For DSPs
DSPs who are temporarily present in a home to perform a service are required to wear face masks at all times. This requirement should be taken seriously by all providers and considered a health and safety issue when reports of facial coverings are not in place. DODD addresses this in two documents. On page 5 of the LTSS Pre-surge Guidance, which remains in effect, DODD lists facial coverings as a requirement for all staff in all service settings. Facial covering requirements are also covered in questions 18 and 19 in DODD's LTSS Pre-Surge Guidance FAQ document

If you are in need of additional masks, please contact the Community Support and Development Department at providersupport@mcbdd.org. While supplies may be limited, we do have the capacity to assist with supply needs. 
Acuity C Extension
After an extensive review of billing and financial data by superintendents during their regional meetings last week, county boards of DD have collectively agreed to continue supporting the temporary Acuity C ratio for providers of small-group, in-person Adult Day Services through the end of September.
