As you know, information and new developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic are being reported every few hours. During this time, Community Living Essex County is closely monitoring the situation and regularly evaluating the precautions and preventative measures we have in place. Our highest priority is to ensure we are taking steps now to protect the people we support and our employees and prevent the spread of the virus. As such, we have temporarily closed respite locations, our main office, all resource centers, and have suspended all community participation supports starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until further notice.

These decisions are not made lightly and we understand these closures can be disruptive to people we support and families. However, these are important and timely actions to limit exposure and prevent the potential spread of the virus.

All non-essential visitors to support locations including family members will be prohibited starting Tuesday, March 17. All employees and essential service persons must complete a Screening Test at every arrival at an agency location.

The information posted here will be updated regularly as the situation develops. If you have any questions please call us at 519-776-6483.
