Read our COVID-19 update for July 5, 2022.

COVID-19 Vaccination Policy and Procedure

Hands is committed to providing a safe place for our clients, employees, volunteers and other visitors. To help keep everyone safe, we have a COVID-19 Vaccination Policy and Procedure as an added measure of protection against COVID-19.

Virtual Service

Hands continues to offer virtual service where possible. This is the safest way to offer important services while protecting our clients, families, employees and communities.

In-Person Service Available

Hands also offers in-person service when needed. Clinicians and employees who are meeting with clients and families are well-trained in Infection Prevention and Control practices to help keep everyone safe. Our sites have been modified to support Infection Prevention and Control and we have Personal Protective Equipment, like masks and gowns available when and where needed.


We know there are lots of questions about the COVID-19 pandemic. We are happy to be able to help answer those questions with the following resources.

Social Stories and Visual Supports

It can be difficult to explain the pandemic to people with communication challenges. These stories and visual aids may help you explain the pandemic in a way that is easy to understand.
