Our inspection services are as normal.  Inspectors are to ask the client if anyone in the home has been sick, ill or not feeling well if the answer to any of these questions are yes, the inspection will be canceled.  We ask our clients to not schedule an inspection if anyone in the home is sick, ill or not feeling well.  We have instructed all staff to follow the CDC guidelines on hand washing and social distancing of 6 feet.  If a resident would like to cancel their inspection, they may do so, but will be responsible to reschedule at a later date.  We will extend any permits for the foreseeable future based on either the inspector or customer not feeling safe about having contact.
