COVID-19 Update 8.19.22
Hello Rimland Families,
Unfortunately, we are seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases (several staff members and individuals we support). We have not let up on mask requirements, etc. However, to keep the individuals we support safe and to keep our workforce intact, we will need to make a few temporary changes to visits. Again, we have not opened up indoor visits yet.
Starting Monday, August 22, anyone coming for a visit or going on a home visit will need to be tested by our nurse (at our main office in Evanston). The person picking them up or visiting them will need to be tested. When an individuals returns to our program, they will need to be tested. If they are positive for COVID-19, they will not be able to return to the program until after the quarantine period. COVID-19 testing can take place with our nurse with an advanced appointment (Please contact Barb at 847-840-1706 or firstname.lastname@example.org). The testing can take place Monday to Friday 10am-4pm. This is temporary and will be reevaluated after Labor Day.
The Rimland Team
