Our Response to COVID-19

The health and well-being of those we support and employ is our highest priority.

In response to the global pandemic OMRS has taken the following measures:

  • Staff, essential personnel, and visitors will complete a health screening prior to entering any of our locations.

  • Visitors will be limited per the Governor’s orders to reduce exposure risks as much as possible.

  • Masks are required and provided to all staff.

  • Staff are provided hand sanitizer and other tools to frequently clean surfaces and hands. 

  • All homes follow strict sanitation and cleaning schedules.

  • Staff training and professional development classes will be delivered virtually whenever possible.  

Stay Home. Save Lives.

The Stay Home Save Lives orders instruct that individuals stay home from usual activities and community events. In response, OMRS has provided tablets so that individuals and families can remain connected virtually.  The tablets also allow for virtual health care visits. In addition, our enrichment team established virtual social events such as bingo, our own version of popular cooking competitions and art classes.  We coordinated porch deliveries of spring flowers, bird house kits, fruit and vegetable starts along with supplies needed for planter sized gardening. These are just some examples of the creative socially distant activities that provide engagement and fun during these challenging times of our routines being flipped upside down and turned inside out. 

For more than 35 years, OMRS has supported individuals who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities. We offer services that enable us to build relationships to enhance lives through mutual caring and growth. We are committed to help keep those we support and our staff safe through our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Oregonians must come together to keep our communities safe and healthy. Your actions can save lives: wear a mask, physically distance, limit your gatherings, stay home when sick, and get a vaccination once it’s available to you.
