      Updated Nov. 12, 2020

      In-home social service providers include, but are not limited to, caregivers or aides, teachers or tutors, social workers, and resettlement agency personnel who visit the homes of their clients. They provide a wide variety of home and community-based services, including personal care, activities of daily living, and more.

      This guidance is not for healthcare service providers. For healthcare service providers, including physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists, who are coordinating the home care and isolation of people with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infection, visit the Interim Guidance for Implementing Home Care of People Not Requiring Hospitalization of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

      For service providers, including personal care attendants, direct support professionals, paraprofessionals, and therapists, providing care to people with disabilities, visit the Guidance for Direct Service Providers.

      For tips of staying safe while scheduling services or repairs, such as installation and repair of plumbing, electrical, heating or air conditioning systems, painting, or cleaning services, inside the home, visit Hiring In-home Services or Repairs.
