V.   Executive Director’s Report

A TDT decision will be made March 16th, which will include February’s data. Region Ten remains committed to staying in the schools as much as possible. Planned to meet at the ALF in Nelson for the next Board meeting. Ms. Beitz is requesting to postpone this. The Leadership Team has meet to create a COOP plan for handling the corona virus. Region Ten will reduce community interaction now that there are confirmed cases of corona virus in VA. This includes restricting residential program outings as well as day support programs. Our population is vulnerable. If the virus comes to Charlottesville, day programs will not run, community spaces will be closed down with electronic meetings taking their place, and the possibility of working from home when appropriate. Quarantine situations are being considered, staffing concerns due to illness, and guidance from the health department and CDC.

VI.   Wellness Recovery Center Presentation

It is a complex program with a complex population. It is a 16-day residential program for crisis situations. This is a hospital diversion program, falling between outpatient therapy and hospitalization. The program averages 10-14 individuals at a time. Referrals come from Emergency Services, prescreen from other CSBs, self-referrals (screening through Emergency Services is needed), and hospital step-downs. The program does take private insurance from Anthem. Some individuals return to Wellness as it is seen as a safe/secure place for them.

 VII.   Consent Agenda

Mr. Gould asked for any corrections to the consent agenda. Mr. Wunsh motioned to approve the consent agenda. Ms. Whitehead seconded the motion. The motion was approved with one abstention from Mr., Murphy.

 VIII.   Housing: Nunley & Cedar Hill

The request is to sell the properties and rent back from a landlord. Mr. Wunsh motioned to sell the properties. Mr. Murphy seconded the motion. The motion was unanimously approved.

IX.   Adjournment

The meeting was adjourned.
