Updated Adult Day Center Order (1/29/21)

On January 29th the Ohio Department of Health issued an updated order regarding the operation of in person day services.

Group Size

It increased the overall group size from 10, including staff to 12 not including staff. This means that as a provider of in-person adult day center-based services you can provide services to 12 people served in one distinct group, plus the staff needed to provide those services.

Building Capacity

In addition, the capacity limitation which was 50% of the fire marshal occupancy number is no longer in place. You may serve up to your building’s occupancy level should you be able to achieve that while adhering to the ODH order. Providers do not need to seek approval to increase group size for already established/approved groups. However, should you want to add a group a provider assurance form must be submitted to DODD and a virtual walk through completed.
