COVID-19 Update 1.20.22
Hello Rimland Families,
We are writing with a pandemic update as it relates to Rimland. The good news is that the individuals we support are back at the Community Day Services Program.
We know one of the big questions is, “when will visit restrictions be lifted?” With today’s update, we are not able to lift restrictions yet. The number of cases/positivity rate is still too high. We need to keep the individuals we support safe, as well as our staff members. We want to share the site that we are using as a resource. It is the Illinois Department of Public Health. At the following link you can see that COVID-19 cases are still highly transmittable at over a 12 percent positivity rate in our area. Once the positivity rate is below 8 percent in our area, we can lift some of the restrictions.

We hope everyone is safe and well!
