Great news! Not only have we made it through another week of no new COVID-19 cases, our state has entered a new stage in our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Last week, the Governor lifted the Stay Home, Stay Safe order as the entire state moves into the “Improving” phase of the MI Safe Start Plan. We want to thank our clients, staff, family, and friends for doing your part to get us here and for your patience and support as we continue our efforts to prevent the spread of the virus. Check out our new data graphs which track active and total COVID-19 cases on our website where you can follow along for current information.
We know many of you have questions about Special Tree’s next steps in COVID-19 recovery.
We want to emphasize that our current safety protocols and procedures will remain in place throughout our organization, even as we gradually reactivate services. Just like we came together to prevent the spread of COVID-19 early on, we remain committed to following the guidelines to keep our clients, staff, and communities safe.
Our COVID-19 team will continue to engage in their thorough planning for delivering safe care and services to our clients as we cautiously reopen our facilities and resume programs including the Discover Summer Pediatric Program, In-patient Therapy, Outpatient Therapy, and Vocational Therapy.
Here's the Latest Updates:
We know that after such a long period of being asked to stay home, the temptation is strong to return to "normal" activities. We urge everyone to follow social-distancing guidelines and to wear PPE when going out. Our continued success and improvement in controlling this pandemic depends on all of us.
We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date on the steps we’re taking in response to COVID-19 and encourage you to reach out to your Case Manager or Residential Program Manager with your questions and concerns.
