RICHCROFT ORGANIZATIONAL UPDATES


First, I would like to thank all of our family and friends who have supported Richcroft during this Pandemic. We have received kind
words, encouragement, and donations. For that, I am extremely grateful.




Effective Friday, September 11th:
As Maryland moves into Phase 3 of its Roadmap to Recovery, Richcroft will be modifying its current visitation policy.


  • Overnight visits are allowed on Friday and Saturday nights only. At this time, Richcroft staff may not provide drop off or pick up transportation.
  • Homes in which an individual or staff has tested positive or there has been a potential exposure will not be allowed to have any visitation.
  • Visitation is not allowed if you are experiencing any signs/symptoms or have had recent contact with anyone who has or may test positive.
  • Visits should still be scheduled with the Program Manager.
  • Pick up and drop off will occur at the front door, not inside the home.
  • Families and supported individuals should continue to follow CDC and State guidelines around mask use and social distancing.
  • Locations where large groups of people congregate without the ability to social distance should be avoided.
  • Outdoor activities are preferred.
  • Should Maryland show a spike or second wave, this policy will be revised.

  • Effective, Saturday, August 22nd

  • Extended day visits may occur outside the home. A day visit is defined as the following:
    • The supported individual is picked up from and returned to the Richcroft home on the same date.
  • Families, legal guardians may provide transportation in their vehicles away from the home. At this time, Richcroft staff may not provide drop off or pick up transportation.
  • Visits should still be scheduled with the Program Manager.
  • Pick up and drop off will occur at the front door, not inside the home.
  • Families and supported individuals should continue to follow CDC and State guidelines around mask use and social distancing.

  • June 4, 2020 Update

    As you know, Governor Hogan has moved Maryland into Phase 2 of the Roadmap to Recover Plan. As a result, Richcroft is modifying its current visitation policy effective Friday, June 5th. We will continue to evaluate how we provide supports using CDC and MD Department of Health guidance.


    Residential

    June 4, 2020 Update

    Richcroft Inc’s modified visitation policy is as follows:

    • Visitation must occur at the home location, outside.
    • Visitation must be planned in advance by scheduling with Program Manager. Visitations will last a maximum of 1 hour and may not exceed 4 visitors.
    • All visitors must wear a mask and practice social distancing to the best of their ability.
    • Visitors may not enter the home.
    • The policy of no back and forth home visits will continue to be enforced at this time.
    • Should Maryland show a spike or second wave, this policy will be revised.

    We know these are difficult and challenging times, requiring hard decisions and unprecedented changes to some Richcroft policies. Please know that the health and safety of our staff and supported individuals is at the core of all decisions we make. As you know, Governor Hogan has lifted the Stay at Home order and Maryland has entered into Phase 1 of the Roadmap to Recovery plan. While the State is able to move into Phase 1, not all counties in which Richcroft provides services will be moving at the same speed. With that in mind Richcroft will be continually evaluating its supports, policies and procedures using CDC and MD Department of Health guidance. At this time, our services and supports will remain as it has been since March 13, 2020.

    This includes the following:

    Residential

    Richcroft will continue to provide 24/7 supports to individuals in our residential program. At this time, the current no visitation policy remains in effect.

Please know that our policy of no home visits during the state of emergency will remain in effect at this time.
