CCP has made the decision to close our DT&H sites on Wednesday, March 18th until further notice.
Our COOP Options program and Employment Supports will continue to operate.
We recognize the hardship this creates for everyone. We believe that this is the safest decision for the people we support, given the current circumstances.
As further updates become available, we will post them on our website, at https://comconpar.com/covid-19/
Thank you for your understanding.

CCP has been closely monitoring the developments over the past week on the COVID-19 Pandemic. This is certainly an unprecedented situation, and we are doing the best we can to respond in a way that best meets the health and safety of the people we support and our staff.
The Department of Human Services is working on guidance for Day Programs. We believe that it is highly likely that a recommendation to close the Day Programs will come. We don’t yet know the timeline for this but are anticipating it will come this week, perhaps as soon as Wednesday. We will update this website as soon as we have a confirmation of the timeline.
For the Community-Based Employment Supports, we anticipate these will continue dependent on the individual employer’s need.
We recognize the hardship this creates for everyone. It is a hardship that will impact all of our lives over the next few months. Our aim is to make the best decisions we can for the people we support given the information we have. Things are changing quickly, and we are working hard to respond.
For now, we have instructed our staff to:
- Increase our sanitization of surfaces and do frequent handwashing.
- Any person with any symptoms of illness should remain home. If they are at the Day Program and begin to have any symptoms, they will be isolated as much as possible while waiting for transportation home or for medical care.
- We are practicing social distancing to the extent possible given the nature of our work.
- We are limiting any visitors and outside activities.
We will continue to follow the guidance of the MN Department of Health, the Department of Human Services, and the CDC.
We appreciate your patience during this rapidly changing situation. Continue to check this site for any updates.
