As we continue to monitor developments around the COVID-19 pandemic, Omni Visions is working closely with state and local agencies, including each state’s departments of children’s services and departments of health, to update our processes accordingly. The health and safety of the children, foster parents, and families we serve – as well as our employees – is our top priority.
Out of an abundance of caution, Omni Visions offices have temporarily closed, but our staff are continuing to conduct operations remotely using video conference systems for the majority of visits with children, foster parents, and biological families. For those occasions when a community based visit is necessary, the Omni Visions staff member will call ahead with a brief screening questionnaire to determine that household members are symptom free.
At our core, Omni Visions understands that supplying full-scale support is critical to foster family success. In the age of COVID-19, we’ve adapted to provide intensive support for children and families online and via phone. Through our regional Facebook groups, we are regularly supplying a variety of family support information while schools remain closed. Much of our ongoing training is now being made available online during this time. And just as we did before COVID-19, we are continuing to provide support 24/7/365.
To reduce staff exposure to the virus, Omni Visions is limiting business travel to mission critical trips and all staff are required to report out-of-state personal travel.
In our efforts to prevent community spread of the virus, we are requiring all Omni Visions staff to report any COVID-19 exposure, testing, and results to our Human Resources Department.
While offices remain closed to visitors, we will continue to have limited staff onsite periodically. When onsite, staff will clean all surfaces as they enter and exit the facility. When we begin accepting visitors again, screening and cleaning protocols will continue to be used to ensure the safety of everyone.
This year, Omni Visions will help thousands of children and families in Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina and Indiana, and we know that COVID-19’s impact will be different in every location. We are continually monitoring developments and will adapt protocols to best meet the health needs of our children, families, and staff.
Any questions regarding Omni Visions’ COVID-19 procedures can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate your continued support of Omni Visions.
