COVID-19 Update: Access Living Employees Working from Home; Building Closed

What Does the Illinois "Stay at Home" Order Mean for People with Disabilities?

 

March 20, 2020 | by Bridget Hayman

This afternoon the Governor announced an  executive order to “stay at home” for the state of Illinois, starting March 21 at 5 p.m. through April 7.  What does that mean for people with disabilities?

The order makes it clear that disability related services and supports are part of the essential functions needed to continue operating in every community. That includes personal care services and direct support services.

Access Living is reviewing the order to pull together additional disability related highlights for your easy access. We will post that soon to our resource page, and we hope that you will continue to stay in touch with us about new resources you want to see added.

For now, please continue your great work to build community during this time of crisis. We appreciate every one of you.
