As of Friday, March 20, 2020, all services at all PRI sites are temporarily suspended. This includes all agency based and employment services. After the closure of the agency sites on Tuesday, employment sites also began to close based on individual business needs and decisions. The few sites remaining at week end were closed on Friday.
During these unusual circumstances, the health and safety of the people we serve and our employees remains our top priority. Preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our local communities is vital and the suspension of our services supports this while ensuring safety. As we continue to all navigate a rapidly changing situation, if you have concerns about client safety during the day and may need additional support, please call or email Kalina Spielbauer (email@example.com or 612-259-2268).
We will continue to monitor the situation and as changes occur that impact PRI, we will continue to update communications. Our website is the best means to access the most up to date information at https://www.partnershipresources.org/covid-19/ and these updates are also be posted on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/partnershipresources/.
I want to thank all of the PRI employees, clients, families, stakeholders, vendors and partners for your support and adjusting to and understanding the need for sudden and swift decisions last week. The impact of this temporary closure is great, not just on the immediate PRI community, but across the entire industry. During the upcoming days, we will be asking our community for continued advocacy, help, and support. Please watch for these communications and do what you can to support the entire community of disability services.
I am thinking about each one of you and am looking forward to when we can resume services. If at any time you have questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-259-2273.
Stay safe, stay healthy.
