Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Updates and Resources

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is responding to an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19). In addition to CDC, many public health laboratories are now testing for the virus that causes COVID-19

The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) has directed regional centers to ensure that certain individuals remain at home rather than attend day services outside the home.

 

According to the latest California Department of Health guidance, the following individuals are at a higher risk for serious illness:

  • Older adults;

  • Individuals with serious chronic medical conditions – such as heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease; or

  • Individuals with compromised immune systems.
     

News about COVID-19 has been developing quickly. The World Health Organization now defines the outbreak as a pandemic

We will be following and assessing the situation on a daily basis and keeping our clients, families and employees updated as needed. All TMI physical offices are temporarily closed, however, TMI managers are accessible and working remotely from home.

ANCOR is laying the groundwork for the 4th COVID-19 stimulus package which will be voted on in May. We encourage you to thank Congress by sending them a message using the ANCOR email toolBy taking action today, you will help members of Congress and their staff—many of whom have been working tirelessly to ensure the needs of people with disabilities are met during this global health pandemic—feel appreciated. In turn, this will encourage their openness to future proposals that further stabilize disability supports. Please check back for petition updates.
