Jim Allbaugh, President & CEO of Carey Services, discusses the agency’s phased reopening that begins June 1. In the video, he explains the many details that go into each of the plan’s three phases and how those details will impact facility-based operations in coming days.
Carey Services will begin a phased reopening of facility-based services on June 1. Programming suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic will reopen in three phases, assuming local health conditions continue on a positive trend.
The June 1 reopening of Marion day-services programming will be for a group of individuals served who are not in COVID-19 high-risk groups. The second reopening phase will begin June 15 for increased numbers of individuals served. The third phase will begin on June 29 and will include individuals served in potential high-risk groups and the reopening of Early Head Start programming. All reopening phases include strict daily health screening, social-distancing and disinfecting protocols.
