This week, day and employment providers received notice from the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) requiring that all in-person facility-based services remain closed. At this time, there is no information from DHS on when these services can resume and there are nadditional guidelines on what will be required of providers when we resume services. 

In the meantime, this disappointing news does not stop the progress at PRI. We continue to prepare for reopening and for the expansion of virtual services delivery. Part of this preparation includes further development of our Pandemic Plan coupled with processes and training. This plan is in draft form, and will be updated when we receive more guidance from DHS in addition to when guidance changes. To review the current draft of the plan please visit the policy section of our website or click here: PRI Pandemic Plan

Thank you for your patience and support during this challenging time. We continue to strive forward towards the day that we can all be working and serving together. In the meantime, if you have questions please know that we are here and you can reach out to your PRI contact or me at 

Stay healthy, stay safe, and please find an opportunity to enjoy the holiday weekend.
