Day Program Reopening Plan
On July 15, 2020 the Interim Guidance Regarding the Reopening of Day Services Certified by the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (Revised) was sent to all providers. This communication is to inform OPWDD day service providers of an additional requirement regarding day service reopening safety plans.
Individuals, families, other caregivers and Care Managers must be able to make decisions about each individual’s participation in day services. To that end, each day service must consider individuals specific needs and circumstances to ensure they are able to participate to the largest extent possible. In addition, OPWDD day services must provide access to the day service safety plans so appropriate parties are able to review the plan remotely and without the need to specifically request each plan from the agency.
