Clovernook staff person assisting a member of the Adult Day Program

June 18, 2020

The Adult Day Program at Clovernook Center for the Blind & Visually Impaired has reopened with new safety precautions per the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities’ COVID-19 Safety Protocols.  Clovernook Center is fortunate to have Keith Crothers, Clovernook Center’s Director of Program Services, leading the way. Keith has been hard at work implementing new state-mandated safety protocols so Clovernook Center may resume operations and continue to provide a safe and engaging environment with a variety of stimulating activities for adults who are blind, visually impaired, or have a physical or intellectual disability.

Clovernook Center’s Adult Day Program has been fully committed and ready to reopen before June 1, 2020. The staff spent over two weeks preparing the Procter Center, which houses Clovernook’s Adult Day Program, for the reopening. The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) was given a virtual tour of the facilities and gave glowing approval to Clovernook Center to resume operations.

Clovernook Center currently has openings in the Adult Day Program with no waiting list at this time. Please contact Program Director Keith Crothers by calling (513) 728-6286 or email kcrothers@clovernook.org to inquire about available spots within our Adult Day Program.

Please take a moment to read over the new safety procedures for Clovernook Center’s Adult Day Program:

  • Staggered participant scheduling in order to allow staff to maintain proper social distancing. Each session will be limited to 10 adults.
  • Temperature checks of participants will be taken upon arrival. Individuals need to register a body temperature below the CDC requirement of 100.4 degrees (Clovernook has taken an extra precaution and in most cases prefers 99.6 degrees).
  • Health screening questions will be asked, including about the presence or absence of any symptoms associated with COVID-19 and exposure to anyone who may be carrying the disease.
  • Masks are required of all visitors upon entry to the facility.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed throughout the facility, including in each activity room.
  • Public drinking fountains have been turned off.
  • Gloves are provided to any individual that requests them.
  • Thorough sanitization will be completed every hour.
  • Social distancing criteria have been put in place, such as strategic placement of tables and chairs and sitting areas. Structured movement directions have been established around the facility to maintain distance.
