DHS All In for the Kids Newsletter about COVID-19

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) understands the uncertainty families are going through during the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. Although this is a difficult time, DHS is committed to helping families keep life as normal as possible, while keeping their families safe and protected. Communities throughout Wisconsin, like ones around the world, have been asked to limit their contact with people outside their own homes. Governor Tony Evers issued a “Safer at Home” order that emphasized limited travel for essential needs to further slow and stop the spread of COVID-19. Support and services for children and families are still a priority for the Children’s LongTerm Support (CLTS) Waiver Program during this global pandemic. Some services will now be provided over the phone or online to reduce the risk and prevent the spread of COVID-19 to families, as well as CLTS waiver staff and service providers. Support and service coordinators (SSCs) and service providers will connect with families to determine the best way to stay in touch so that access to needed supports and services remains unchanged.
