IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) DISEASE

Positive Behavior Steps is here to support all members of the community during the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease. In an effort to contain the spread of the disease, we will continue to follow the guidance and direction of the Department of Developmental Services (DDS), as well as that of other state and local health agencies.

Our priority is to protect the health and well being of our employees and that of the individuals whom we serve on a daily basis. Therefore, we urge all employees to follow the recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health officials by staying home when you are sick. Additionally, the Governor of California has issued a directive urging seniors and those with chronic health conditions to isolate themselves at home as a preventative measure to contain the spread of COVID-19.
 
Please remember to wash your hands often, cover your mouth with a tissue when sneezing or coughing, and wipe down hard surfaces to reduce the risk of exposure to this disease.
