It is important to us that we do all we can to keep you informed about how we are handling significant public health concerns like Corona virus – COVID-19.

We are closely monitoring the latest reports from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the health departments in Suffolk County, Nassau County and New York City. We are prepared to work closely with relevant public health officials and MLTCs should there be a need to close the agency. If the agency has to be closed, our answering service will be in place to receive and dispatch all calls, and our Care Coordinators and other agency staff will be working remotely to assist with continuity of care.
In the meantime, we are closely following public health expert’s guidance. Field staff has been remediated on Universal Precautions and Infection control measures.
