COVID-19 : Important Information

 

Due to the Mayor’s Office declaring a public health emergency in the District to slow the progression of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Early Learning and Early Intervention Center (ELC) will be closed from Monday, March 16th through Friday, April 24th.

The health and safety of our staff and those we support is the number one priority.
  • While the decision to close was made to prioritize the health and safety of our school community, we do understand it may be disruptive to our families; however, we thank you for your continued patience as we navigate this unique situation, and please let us know if you have any questions. You may email us at info@nccinc.org

    Many resources, including information about how to protect yourself and your family, are available at https://www.cdc.gov/. The symptoms that are currently being seen with COVID-19 are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you believe that you’re experiencing symptoms or think you’ve been exposed to the COVID-19, call your healthcare provider before visiting a medical facility.

    For families who are in need, meals will be available for all students every weekday starting Monday, March 16th. For the list of school meal locations, visit https://coronavirus.dc.gov/food.

 

background

NCC is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure we are prepared with our response and contingency plans. The health and safety of our staff and those we support is the number one priority. We are getting daily information from trustworthy and expert resources such as The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Department of Disability Services (DDS), Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE), American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) and the Mayor’s office. Our goal is to be prepared and not panic as we follow our current and enhanced protocols and be ready to quickly make needed adjustments to protect the agency and the welfare of all its important stakeholders.

In terms of prevention, NCC is reiterating the importance of following the CDC best practices recommended for health and hygiene and taking extra precautions in cleaning and sanitizing at all its locations. NCC has also instituted a travel policy limiting international and domestic business air travel across the agency.
