Governor's executive order 20-19
Pursuant to the Governors executive order 20-19 which states:
Designation of Certain Worker as Health Care Providers under FFCRA:
Congress recently enacted the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, HR 6201, effective April 1, 2020, which, among other things, authorizes expanded paid sick and family leave for covered employees during the COVID-19 national emergency. The Act exempts health care providers from its provisions. While the act provides a definition of “health care provider” it also allows a governor to expand who is a health care provider necessary for that state’s response to COVID-19.
Solely for purposes of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, any employee of any provider of support to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, older adults, or individuals with mental health needs, including substance use, funded through any state or federal program, Medicaid Home and Community Based Services, and/or provided in an Intermediate Care Facilities (CRF/DD, CRMNF, or ICF/IDD as defined in 405 IAC 1-1-1) who is providing care and support essential to activities of daily living and independence to a vulnerable population of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, older adults, or individuals with mental health needs, including substance use, is considered a health care provider vital to Indiana’s response to COVID-19.
