I am writing to inform you that Partnership Resources, Inc. is currently in the process of planning and preparing to expand the in-person services provided at our PRI facilities to the full (6 hours) day of programming (as was previously provided before COVID). When this change occurs, in-person services at our agency programs will no longer be delivered in two 3-hour shifts. Services will be provided from approximately 8:30am-2:30pm (plus transportation time if utilizing PRI transportation).
The exact dates that each program location will make this transition will vary and is not yet confirmed. We are tentatively planning for some time in May or June for each program. We are still working on hiring the additional staff needed, arranging transportation resources, and preparing our facilities. For those already attending in-person services at an agency program, we will reach out to you via memo and a personal reach out by your Designated Coordinator or Program Director to inform you of the exact date of the transition once it is solidified. We will also communicate more related details and information (including transportation time, mealtime info, etc.) at that time.
With the change to the 6-hour day, PRI will continue to follow many of the same safety measures that have been in place throughout in-person services during COVID to include:
- Health screenings upon arrival
- Please continue to screen persons served prior to coming to PRI. If exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, persons should not attend PRI and should report symptoms when reporting their absence.
- If a client does not pass the health screening upon arrival, they will be quarantined until the residence can pick the person up from PRI.
- Face coverings continue to be required in PRI facilities and on PRI contracted transportation
- Social distancing
- Consistent cohorts of no more than 10 persons at a time
At this time, a COVID-19 vaccination is not required in order to attend PRI in-person services, however, PRI is highly encouraging individuals to consider receiving the vaccine. Based on MDH recommendations and operating requirements by the Department of Human Services, PRI continues to require that a face covering be worn within PRI facilities for all persons, whether vaccinated or not.
