Message from the Deputy Director (May 13)

Finally the leaves are popping on the trees and the tulips are coming up. The final real coming of spring (snow last weekend!?!) is helping give me a little peace of mind in this anxious time. I hope it is for you too. Barb and I have been on a number of Department Zoom meetings over the past several weeks and it’s been fun to hear what people are doing this time of year. Lots of people are taking walks, riding bikes, hiking and working in the garden. Another sign for optimism is the Governor’s guidance on opening up the economy. I am sure you have seen her staged approach over the coming months. While there is general agreement we are in for a long haul before the spread of the virus is controlled by a vaccine, I am sure we all will welcome the increased activity that will come with a safely staged opening. Here at YCCAC, we are taking a close look at what that will mean for us, and how we will continue to provide service and support while keeping our clients, patients and staff safe. It’s becoming increasingly obvious how even more critical those services will be for individuals and families in York County, with the effect of the virus and its impact on the economy. We are working with Department Directors and will have guidance in the coming weeks on our approach. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact Barb or me if you have any questions.
