The Mayor's Reopening Applies to People DDS Supports

In a blog post several weeks ago (https://www.ddinwdc.com/2020/07/rolling-back-disability-rights-in-dc.html), I pointed out that some DDA provider agencies continue to resist the idea that the mayor’s reopening guidance applies to the people they support. 

If there still was any confusion on this point, it should have been made crystal-clear as of yesterday when DDS posted this guidance:  https://dds.dc.gov/node/1490546.  

Please share this widely, since people’s rights continue to be restricted and it needs to stop now.  This is indeed a time of risk, and good support and guidance are needed.  But rights still are rights.
