**What is Devereux doing to support and protect the health and safety of our staff during the COVID-19 pandemic?**

At Devereux, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our clients, staff and families. All Devereux centers have formal infectious-disease and emergency-management plans tailored to specifically address the unique aspects of COVID-19 prevention. In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization, just a few of these precautions have included:

+ Establishing enhanced cleaning and disinfection across all campuses and sites

+ Implementing social distancing protocols across all programs

+ Using PPE, including masks, gloves and gowns as indicated by the CDC

+ Ensuring daily temperature and symptom screenings for all staff and clients

Throughout the pandemic, Devereux has also supported the physical and financial health of our dedicated team members - our very own Healthcare Heroes. A variety of options have been implemented over time to support our staff, including the provision of:

+ Ongoing dedication bonuses, as well as sign-on bonuses, for direct support professionals (DSP) and other staff members

+ Flexible schedules, remote working where possible, and redeployment between programs and services

+ Hazard pay for those supporting quarantined individuals and shelter away services to frontline staff, when needed, to mitigate spread to families

+ Advancing paid time off and sick time; eliminating telemedicine costs over a period of time

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we will continue to adapt our response (and protocols) in real-time to meet any challenges and to ensure the safety of our staff and those we are so privileged to serve and support. #devereuxstrong
