Rise now requires face masks.
Rise has updated our COVID-19 safety precautions following new health guidance.
- Beginning Monday, August 9, 2021, masks are once again required for all persons served, team members and guests at all Rise locations, including on Rise transportation.
- This requirement is for everyone, including those are fully vaccinated.
- People who cannot wear a mask due to their disability should speak with their Rise staff member to determine necessary and appropriate accommodations.
- People served who are working at community sites or out in the community must follow the masking guidelines of the business or location.
- The Department of Health recommends all staff and people served be tested immediately after being exposed to COVID-19 and be retested three to seven days after exposure regardless of vaccination status.
The Delta variant is now the dominant strain of COVID-19 in the U.S. This variant spreads easily and quickly, leading to more cases of COVID-19, especially among vulnerable and unvaccinated people. This is why current guidelines also encourage people to get vaccinated if they have not done so.
People served at Rise are at risk because they receive supports in group environments which put them near others. These conditions make them medically vulnerable.
Rise programs are open and ready to accommodate support needs, schedules, and preferences. We continue to offer part-time and remote services for people who are not comfortable attending in person, allowing them to continue working toward their goals and maintain Rise relationships.
