Aspire of WNY Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear Family and Friends of Aspire & Our WNY Community Neighbors,
 
As we continue to sail into uncharted waters, I want to continue to assure you that we are working diligently to anticipate the many needs of the individuals we serve.  At this time, there continues to be no confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus at any Aspire locations.  I ask that you utilize this webpage as your source for information regarding the services and programs within our organization.
 
Please see below for a list of resources to help you better navigate some of the issues related to COVID-19.
Currently, the New York State Department of Health recommends the following steps to minimize the spread of all respiratory viruses, including COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing. If you use a tissue, throw it in the trash.
  • Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
 
We will update this page regularly in an effort to keep you informed.  Thank you for your continued support.
 
Stay safe and be well,
Renee A. Filip
President and Chief Executive Officer
