Abstract

The following guidance is based on the most current Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) guidance. The health and safety of children, family, staff and administrators are of the utmost importance. This guidance is not intended to address every potential scenario that may arise as this event evolves. It is important to keep open lines of communication daily at all levels within each of your respective organizations. Open communication decreases anxiety for workers as well as families. It is important that child welfare service contractors and referring DHS workers maintain constant communication with one another. Home visitation and in-person visits with families are an essential aspect of providing services designed to ensure the protection of children and families.
