Good Afternoon!
To keep you informed & connected to all of our work here at The Arc of South Norfolk and Lifeworks, we will continue to send regular updates, videos and photos.

In an effort to keep all residents and staff safe and healthy during this time the following protocols have been put in place at our residential programs.

Health Benefit Information:

During these challenging times with COVID-19, we wanted to remind all Lifeworks and The Arc of South Norfolk employees that as part of our Tufts medical plan, we have access to their telehealth mobile application, Teladoc. If you, your family members, or any of your employees are a part of our Tufts medical plan, please encourage them to download this app and use it for any non-life threatening medical needs.

Many of the things you do to help prevent colds and the flu can help protect you against other respiratory viruses, including COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.  For more information on hand washing
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Clean things that are frequently touched (like doorknobs and countertops) with household cleaning spray or wipes.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Use a tissue or your inner elbow, not your hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with others.
