Employment Path and Day Support Activity services
starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020.
To our valued customers, families, and agency partners,
This notice is to inform you of Collaborative Employment Innovations (CEI) plan forward regarding coronavirus (COVID-19).
We understand how important it is for many of the people we support to have consistency and social interactions. As things change quickly, the following is what we know today:
Social Distancing - The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
80% of customers accessing Employment Path and Day Support Activity supports have canceled services through March.
60% of direct support staff have called-in or on leave for reasons unrelated to COVID-19
75% of Employment Path Community volunteer sites have closed.
As a result of the above, CEI has decided to
Cancel all Employment Path and Day Support Activity services starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020.
Our administrative team will review resuming services weekly.
This temporary cancellation of services is for Employment Path Community and Day Support Activity services. Customers who require support to maintain competitive integrated employment will continue to receive job coaching support. That said, many businesses have temporarily changed how they operate to reduce public interaction or have temporarily closed.
The safety of customers, community, social responsibility is essential to CEI, and thank you for your understanding.
