New Public Health Order and Requirements Affect DDRC OperationsNovember 20, 2020


DDRC continues to put the health of the people we serve as well as our staff at the forefront of our concerns and values, and we continue to practice prudent health precautions in our operations.

On November 17, due to increasing COVID infection rates and community spread, Colorado Governor Polis issued a new public health order that affects DDRC operations. The order specifies more restrictive occupancy rates of offices and other buildings based upon the size of the facilities. We have communicated these requirements to our staff to help ensure we are following these orders. In addition, there is a new guidance that requires that DDRC staff and others who interface with individuals who we serve in our group residential settings must be tested and monitored for COVID on a twice weekly basis. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment  is providing DDRC the appropriate test kits and assessments to help ensure effective monitoring.

We thank the individuals and families that we serve for their understanding in these matters and we are grateful to our DDRC staff for their continued attention and cooperation in following these public health orders.
