For all home and community-based service and intermediate care facility providers offering services funded or administered through the Office of Developmental Programs, please note that you are considered life-sustaining and are therefore exempt from the Governor’s directive asking for the closure of all non-essential businesses. Home and community-based service and intermediate care facility providers offer services that maintain basic health and safety requirements in a multitude of essential ways and those providers are expected to continue offering those services through the COVID-19 crisis period.
Thank you for all of your valuable and life-sustaining work and for your commitment to serving Pennsylvanians with intellectual disabilities and autism.
Kristin Ahrens | Deputy Secretary
