VIP Services Continues to Suspend Facility-Based Client Services through at least April 30th

Effective March 25th, The State of Wisconsin enacted a Safer at Home directive from Governor Tony Evers. The Executive Order highlights the expectation for individuals to refrain from public interaction except to receive essential services and supplies, and for those whose jobs are to provide such services and supplies. This is part of the statewide response to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition, the Federal Government has recommended that all Americans refrain from nonessential group interaction through at least April 30.

In compliance with this guidance:

  • All facility-based client services will remain closed until such time that we believe our operations will not pose a health risk to our clients and our staff. This includes:
    • Day and Respite Services
    • Prevocational and Production Center Employment
  • Community Integrated Employment services remain at its current limited scope
  • VIP Services’ Transportation Department will continue to operate as an essential service for Walworth county residents
    • As of March 25th, we are not transporting for non-essential trips as detailed by Governor Evers’ executive order
    • Additionally, we ask any individual who presents symptoms of the Coronavirus to isolate, contact your doctor, and not use our services. VIP Services’ Transportation Department is not an emergency transport service
    • To schedule a ride, please contact the department at (262) 723-4402.
  • We will continue to update the community to any changes we are required to make by posting updates on VIP Services website and Facebook page.
  • For more information regarding VIP Services response to the COVID-19 crisis, please contact Cindy Simonsen, Executive Director at (262) 723-4043.
