EMERGENCY PLANNING FOR PROGRAMS
   COVID-19 Prevention & Preparedness

COVID-19 is a serious worldwide pandemic that is impacting our daily lives in numerous ways.  In an effort to help with prevention and preparedness, CDVSA is providing links to key resources that can assist employers, service providers, shelter programs and the general public for consistent and accurate information.

            During a public health crisis such as the current COVID-19 pandemic, when public health officials recommend “social distancing”
          to slow the spread of infection, technology tools may help support shifting to a remote workplace, mobile advocacy, and  
          communicating with survivors. In considering new technology, survivors must be at the center of our decision-making. This    
          is true in ordinary times and must still apply even in a public health crisis. National Network to End Domestic Violence’s Safety  
          Net Project  hosted 4 webinars in March to discuss considerations for using digital services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

          Each webinar was recorded and posted at TechSafety.org.
