Precautionary measures being taken at Providence Center:

  • Staff are diligently cleaning and disinfecting buildings and vehicles throughout the day.
  • The soap in the dispensers at each of our sites is an approved and an effective cleaning agent for hand washing and killing germs. We have hand sanitizer in all of our locations.
  • Our janitorial service is cleaning surfaces each evening.
  • We are reminding the people we support to wash their hands frequently.
  • We are asking staff to stay home if they have flu-like symptoms and seek appropriate medical care.
  • If someone we support has flu-like symptoms, we will contact their family member or residential home to have them picked up and our staff will follow our emergency response procedures and CDC If someone is sick with flu-like symptoms, please keep them home and seek appropriate medical care.
  • We are limiting community outings.
  • We have signs at all entrances reminding visitors of our policies, and information sheets throughout our locations.

A few things you can do to stay healthy, like you would with the flu, are:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or hand-wipe with at least 60% alcohol.

State agencies continue to develop comprehensive, coordinated prevention and response plans for COVID-19. If you have specific questions about COVID-19, please dial 211 to speak with an expert.
