The Arc Madison Cortland is committed to keeping the individuals we support, their families and our employees healthy and safe. To date, we do not have a confirmed case of COVID-19 caused by the novel coronavirus in our agency. However, we are aware of concerns in the community about the spread of this relatively new virus and wish to share some important information with you. A team of leadership staff is closely monitoring this fluid situation and following guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), Madison and Cortland County's Department of Health, and New York State OPWDD.
The Arc Madison Cortland has infectious disease protocols in place and routinely takes steps, such as cleaning and disinfecting surfaces throughout all main locations, including day and residential programs, to minimize the spread of viruses and a variety of other illnesses.
There are a number of steps that individuals, staff, and community members can take to minimize the spread of all respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19 and to prepare for such illness according to the state Department of Health.
Should you have any questions please feel free to call 315-363-3389.
