Update On Re-Opening Suspended Programs

Friends & Family, Over the past two months we have faced many difficult decisions regarding how we best address the issues surrounding COVID-19. During that time we have committed to making data-informed and expert-guided decisions, establishing specific criteria for us to use as we determine what is best for LOGAN and the individuals we serve. I continue to receive data and guidance from local and state officials who are the most knowledgeable in what is still an ever-changing pandemic.

During this time period we will continue to pay both the employees’ portion and LOGAN’s portion of health insurance premiums for employees on temporary layoff.
