YAP's Response to COVID-19

Like many of you, YAP has been diligently following the news about the coronavirus disease, or COVID-19. We are working as an organization to ensure that we are prepared in each of our locations across the country to both prevent or slow down the spread of the virus and to, when necessary, respond to an outbreak. 

There is a lot of information out there about the virus. Right now we know the most effective strategies for preventing and reducing spread of the disease include good hygiene, disinfecting and social distancing

We encourage our employees and the families we work with to stay informed about the evolving coronavirus situation through using the most reliable and vetted sources. In addition to the national and international links below, we advise individuals to pay attention to communications from their state and local agencies and follow any recommended actions to take to protect yourself and your community.
