    Plan. Prepare. Respond.

    **Keep in mind COVID-19

    You may need to adjust any emergency plan based on the latest from your state, local officials and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

    Celebrate Olmstead Decision

    Throughout the year and annually on June 22, celebrate the Olmstead Decision. This year marked the 22nd anniversary of Olmstead v. L.C. This landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision held that unjustified segregation is a form of discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and people with disabilities have a civil right under the ADA to live and participate in their communities.

    We honor Lois Curtis and Elaine Wilson, known for their refusal to live institutionalized, which led to the Olmstead decision by the U.S. Supreme Court on June 22, 1999.
