The COVID-19 crisis has presented many challenges and Via has continued to adapt to address these challenges. When the number of COVID-19 cases increased in December, we closed our facility-based services, but continued to provide in-person services in the community following CDC-recommended health and safety guidelines. We also continued providing services virtually. Since mid-February, we have welcomed back participants to facility-based services and close to 50% of participants have returned with more people coming back every week.
Everyone is continuing to wear masks, socially distance and practice hand hygiene to keep our community safe and healthy. It is wonderful to welcome more people back to services. And, this past Friday was another great day because it was PAYDAY!!
