Information on the Corona pandemic affecting day centers.

Fellow adult day services providers, as you have probably seen today the Wisconsin Governor Evers orders to deal with the Corona pandemic will allow us to keep our services open if we want and need that to happen. Proper care should be taken to protect our participants and our employees and WADSA strongly suggests that only those participants who cannot be taken care of at home, be allowed to attend. As this situation is changing daily, we may be facing other restrictions or parameters at any time. Do your utmost to make the best decision for your individual facilities and communities.
If you are closing or have made significant changes in your operation, the State Division of Quality Assurance would like to be informed. You can reach them at 608-266-8481.
WADSA has asked for additional direction from the Division of Quality Assurance and we are waiting for their feedback. They are aware of our collective concerns and trying to get us answers that are more specific. When we hear anything additional from the State, we will pass it along. In the meanwhile, we will try to keep any helpful information on the WADSA website.
