Day Program Update

Aug 30, 2021 | News and Announcements

Githens Center reopened at reduced capacity on May 10, 2021.

As you may be aware, the Department of Human Services’ Division of Developmental Disabilities released day program re-opening requirements on April 22, 2021.

While all day programs may re-open, capacity is tied to the COVID-19 Activity Level Index (CALI) for the region in which the program is located.

Operating capacity based on CALI designation is as follows: 25% in Very High (Red); 50% in High (Orange); 50% in Moderate (Yellow); and full capacity in Low (Green).

Day programs are congregate facilities serving individuals with varying levels of risk for developing complications following the contraction of COVID-19. An individual’s risk of contracting and transmitting COVID-19 is higher if they have not been vaccinated, if the individual is not able to adhere to distancing and masking guidelines, and when COVID-19 activity is higher in their region.
