Independence, Inc. COVID – 19 Statement, Information and Resources

COVID 19 Statement

As we all know, COVID-19, or Corona Virus, is causing not only a world-wide pandemic, but is raising questions daily along with uncertainty, fear, information overload, and ever-changing plans for businesses, organizations, service providers and societies and communities as a whole.  It is our desire here at Independence, Inc. to keep our consumers informed and put everyone’s health and safety as our top priority. Our current safety measures follow the announcement from Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health of a positive COVID-19 case in Douglas County. We are also following Governor Kelly’s Executive Orders, closely monitoring CDC recommendations and monitoring local protocol – all while keeping a calm and rational perspective and assessing needs as they pertain directly to our consumers and our organization.  We recognize how quickly things are changing and we will update information in a timely manner as needed. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
