In keeping everyone safe and healthy, before people can return and receive services and supports, they must contact the Clinical Director(s) for completion of the re–entry intake. Approval and authorization will not occur until re–entry intake is completed, and each person is healthy to receive services and supports.
Each person must be healthy and show no signs of illness, i.e. no fever, cough, trouble breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and a loss of taste or smell.
Standard Messaging: During the intake process, residential provider will be informed about GSDC’s Tiered Response to COVID–19. In addition, residential provider will concur and follow with the company’s actions, if or when participants exhibit any signs of illness. They will immediately pick them up from services.
If anyone shows signs of illness, they will be encouraged to wear a mask and strictly follow the social distancing guidelines. Staff will wear masks. Residential provider will be contacted for immediate pick–up. Individual will not be allowed to return for two days, longer if necessary, and follow the stay–at–home order. Before they can return, they will need to contact Clinical Director(s) for approval.
