COVID-19 UPDATE

Our services have been adapted to an online format to support our clients.  Brain Injury Services continues to develop policies and preventive measures to minimize risks for both our clients and staff.

Support Groups, Workshops, and services that require multiple people to gather are operating virtually.  BIS community volunteers are providing virtual support to our clients.

Starting May 2021, Brain Injury Services will begin a hybrid model of service and activity at ADAPT and Fredericksburg. Both programs will meet one day a week.  Clients will be required to wear a face mask while in the building.  Clients will be allowed breaks outdoors during the day to help with mask fatigue. The ADAPT and Fredericksburg day program managers will be reaching out to clients to share the in-person and virtual programming.

Be assured that the health and safety of our employees, families, and communities are our top priority. We remain diligent in monitoring the evolving Coronavirus pandemic in our region to ensure we stay up to date on the latest guidelines and regulations.

Please call (703) 451-8881 with any questions or concerns.
