Triangle, Inc. cares deeply about the health and well-being of our participants and staff. In that spirit, we have suspended our DDS Day Programs in Malden (both Main Street and Pearl Street locations), Randolph, and Salem locations until at least Monday, March 30th. We believe this is the best way forward for the health and safety of the individuals in our programs, their families, and Triangle’s dedicated staff members.
To date, we are not aware of any exposure to COVID-19 experienced by any member of our staff or by individuals in our program. This cancellation is to prevent any undue risk to our individuals, many of whom are older or have existing medical conditions that make them particularly vulnerable to this public health crisis. All families and individuals affected by this cancellation have been notified and we will continue to communicate future decisions with them as we learn more.
Please note that this closure is only relevant to our DDS supported programs.
- Triangle’s Workforce Development department will continue to work with MRC and DTA clients. Many of these staff members are working remotely or one-to-one with individuals.
- Both IMPACT and EPIC programs will also be continue to operate, mostly through remote programming that utilizes video conferencing. If you are involved in any of these programs and have further questions, please reach out to your specific IMPACT or EPIC point-of-contact for more information.
- All nine of Triangle’s residential homes will continue to provide support to our 43 residents, many of whom will be spending their days at home in the coming weeks due to this outbreak. We will also be asking our residents to refrain from attending any day programs during this time to align ourselves with recommended public health procedure for communal living.
We will continue to use our website, blog, and social media channels to make more announcement as needed into the future. We hope all members of the larger Triangle community stay safe and healthy as we move through the next few weeks.
