Our older clients and their families are among the two groups at highest risk for the COVID-19 illness, according to the CDC. We are posting this message to keep you informed about what we are doing to protect our clients, families, employees, and neighbors.
We are maintaining our scheduled client appointments.
If you have an upcoming meeting and you would prefer to re-schedule it, please call us. We will be happy to set a future meeting date.
Public health officials recommend limiting access to buildings and gatherings of more than 100 people. Our office is located in a building with limited exposure to the public. There are usually fewer than 15 people in our building at any time.
Our work is important to our clients. Long-term care facilities are beginning to limit access from visitors. As attorneys, we have authority to visit our clients in nursing homes. QSO-20-14-NH-03/09/2020. Click here to read the full text of the rule.
We have instructed our staff to stay home if they feel sick, to self-quarantine if they experience symptoms consistent with the coronavirus.
We are doing extra cleaning between appointments and any time we have visitors in the office.
Finally, we are monitoring the news from our public officials - Washtenaw County Community Health Department, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and the federal Center for Disease Control (CDC). We will revise our office policies and client visit procedures as our public officials advise us to do.
