DDS Reopening Plans

The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) continues to roll out reopening plans for DDS related programs and services that were limited or closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This webpage will communicate each of these reopening plans as they are released and will include updates or modifications to such plans as they occur. The intent of this webpage is to create a centralized location for access to all reopening related material being issued through DDS. Reopening plans will also continue to be posted in their designated areas through the DDS website. Please note that all plans are subject to change.
