Deaf Access statement on COVID-19 coronavirus:
Deaf Access has been and continues to monitor the current COVID-19 coronavirus health threat and will work within the guidance from local, state, and federal agencies as well as health experts. The health and well-being of all those who are in and around Deaf Access, our interpreters, and our customers is a top priority for us. Keeping this in mind, Deaf Access has taken the following measures to be responsible citizens while still providing necessary services in support of the Deaf community.
Deaf Access will continue to do our best to fill all interpreting assignments that are requested as we have done faithfully for the past 25 years. We understand that many of our customers cannot cease operations during this time and that the Deaf community still has the right to a qualified interpreter for their needs.
Deaf Access also has the capability to provide Video Remote Interpreting (VRI). If your interpreting assignment needs to be conducted remotely, Deaf Access is available to provide a qualified interpreter to you through a secure, HIPAA compliant connection at the touch of a button. We understand that many places of business are taking precautions during this time and we are prepared to support you in whatever way we can. For more information on COVID-19 and its implications for everyday life, please refer to NAD’s response today which can be found here (https://www.nad.org/2020/03/12/coronavirus/). Deaf Access has been a proud partner of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community since 1995 and will continue to work alongside you!
