The Lackawanna-Susquehanna BH/ID/EI Program, following guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, encourages all service providers in Lackawanna and Susquehanna County  to educate yourself and your staff on recommendations to plan for and respond to COVID-19 in the event that we begin to see spread of the virus within Pennsylvania and Lackawanna and Susquehanna Counties. Please share this information broadly within your organization and with the general public that you serve. 

For service providers, we recommend the Centers for Disease Control web link below and the section titled “Recommended Strategies for Employers to Use Now” as a starting point for discussion within your organization.
