RE: COVID 19- Update  
 
Licensees and Applicants,
THANK YOU for your work in long-term care.  We are facing unique and challenging times as we learn to navigate through the impacts of COVID-19. We want to inform you of some important information or FAQ’s regarding BENHA/BELTSS operations and programs in the spirit of cooperation and support for the Senior living and health services profession and industry.  
 
BENHA Operations
BENHA/BELTSS is honoring the Governor’s directive for socially distancing through May 4, 2020.  We are telecommuting and physically entering the office only to reestablish workflow.   Please feel free to use email and leave voice messages which are forwarded to the Executive Director’s cell phone.  Our board always attempts to respond within 24 hours.  We continue to gather application materials electronically.  Scan and email will get a faster response than US Mail.
