Buffalo NY (Erie County) social workers endangering lives!!

My friend has social workers still visiting her home at the end of March in NY state. They go into her home with no masks and no gloves, and they do not respect social distancing. I think it is a CRIME, you people should be ashamed of yourself. If my friend and her disabled children get sick I am going to help them file a lawsuit against Erie County for every penny the county has left after this is over. SHAME!!!!

Managing exceptions to the rules

A thoughtful article filled with insights about minimizing risk - even when it's required to make exceptions to the rules, in social work. Thanks, Allan Barsky
