OPWDD COVID-19 Interim Guidance Regarding Non-Emergency Site Visits of Certified Facilities

On September 15, 2020, the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) issues COVID-19 Interim Guidance Regarding Non-Emergency Site Visits of Certified Facilities.  As the State begins to resume many normal business operations, OPWDD recognizes the need for OPWDD employees and employees of outside vendors and agencies to access certified facilities to perform maintenance and repair work, conduct routine surveys, and other non-emergent inspections. This guidance aims to continue to ensure as safe an environment as possible, while permitting increased access to residences and program sites
