Throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) state of emergency, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) has released a variety of guidance to the field.

Much of that guidance has a direct impact on how direct support professionals (DSPs) provide services to the people who they support. Click here to learn more.

DODD also has explanations about how specific guidance relates to families of Ohioans with developmental disabilities. Learn more here.

COVID CareLine: Call 1-800-720-9616 to connect with a behavioral health professional from 8 AM to 8 PM, seven days per week. After 8 PM, the CareLine will forward to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. 

For specific questions about COVID-19, visit, call your local health department, or call the Ohio Department of Health's COVID-19 hotline at 1-833-427-5634. Click here for other DODD guidance.
