Mask Order!!!


We hope you are staying well. We have continued to keep abreast of Covid-19 by following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, PA. Department of Health, Department of Human Services, OSHA and Department of Labor guideline and safety recommendations. Our Commitment to update and train our DCWs regarding helpful information about community transmission and mitigation measures, as well as for evolving guidance on disinfection and other best practices for DCW and Participant’s protection has been our primary goal from the onset of this pandemic.


We will be sending out letters to all participants making them aware of the new order re: wearing mask.


Governor Wolf ordered to have all employees in each workplace (inside and out), to abide by wearing mask. The rule of thumb is that your mask protects the participant and the participants mask protects you. Maximum Care Inc. is mandating out Caregivers to mask while at work to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. We have also been practicing Employee/Client self-screening and monitoring or temperature, signs and symptoms. If your participants are in need of mask call the office and we will mail it to them or you may pick it up for them. Client’s can also utilize handkerchiefs as masks. It has been found that utilizing cloth and double folding the material has been more helpful than not double folding cloth.


Moving forward, we are trying our best to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and to supply all of our Client’s with DCW. By not following the recommended guidelines, will only result in the illness spreading, therefore, minimizing our ability to service our Participants consistently.


Be Safe when out in the community! While you are out with family, friends, participants, or working continue to use the 6 ft distance (social distancing), it has been put in place for everyone’s safety. When it is not possible to keep social distance make sure to wear your mask over your nose, mouth and chin. If out with participant make sure the participant is wearing a mask properly. There is proof, double masking will protect you from droplets while 2.5 feet apart. If any client refuses to wear mask for any reason please report to the office.


Many have tired of the pandemic and have let their guard down. Covid-19 is still very real and we want to make sure to do our part to control the spread.
