One Strong Voice (OSV) is a policy group that meets via Zoom the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month. Our group includes CCDC staff and community leaders from across the state who work for or with disability organizations throughout Colorado. We provide a safe, confidential platform for discussing the issues which directly affect Colorado’s disability community, including housing, health care, K-12 Education, transportation, and more.
OSV participated in a call hosted by The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). During the call, they received a number of questions about what individuals can do to prevent states from developing discriminatory medical triage protocols. Below is the list of resources they compiled, including the #NoBodyIsDisposable campaign, and a Know Your Rights toolkit for people facing discrimination during medical triage.
On Wednesday, the Treasury Department announced that people who receive Social Security Title II retirement, survivors’, and disability insurance benefits will not need to file tax returns to get their CARES Act Economic Impact Payments. While this is an important assurance, the Administration is still requiring millions of low-income seniors and people with disabilities who receive only Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Veterans (VA) Disability Compensation or Veterans Pension benefits to file a tax return in order to receive their stimulus payment. These individuals need the stimulus payments the most and will spend them the quickest, but many of these individuals face very significant barriers to filing tax returns.
Call your members of Congress at (202) 224-3121 and tell them: “Thank Treasury for doing the right thing for Social Security beneficiaries—now they need to include SSI recipients as well.”

Re: Equitable, Life-saving Care for People with Disabilities in Our State during the COVID-19 Pandemic: The COLORADO Ethics Example for our Nation
Dear Governor Polis,
Thank you again for your extraordinary leadership during this crisis. As you know, there are approximately 600,000 people with disabilities in the state of Colorado. Considering family members, friends and people whose livelihood depends on us the impact of disability exceeds 2 million Coloradans.
Over the next week, you will need to approve Critical Care Triage guidelines for the state of Colorado, The Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition has confirmed strong support from well over 100 disability organizations in our state (including every Community Centered Board) all of whom have signed onto this summary letter corresponding to our communication on March 25, 2020.
Our stakeholders feel strongly that the Critical Care Triage Guidance for Crisis Standards of Care (CSC) must apply to all hospitals in our state or at least the guidance within the CSC specific to those with disabilities. Below is a recap of what must be included to ensure people with disabilities have equal access to other Coloradans as we all try to survive this pandemic.
There must also be an easy way to use an appeal process and we must make information about enforcement accessible as well.
Governor Polis, thank you for helping protect ALL of Colorado citizens and for ensuring our state’s leadership in ethical and accessible healthcare and civil rights protections for people with disabilities. We look forward to receiving the CSC and anticipate that it will be both a state and hospital level mandate and include these basic safeguards that are the underpinnings of our very humanity. We are humbled to work with your administration and have been proud when talking with our peers nationally that Colorado is a leader in this difficult time. We expect that once you issue an order we immediately get national attention to encourage other states to follow our lead.

Over the past few days, I’ve looked through some old books that present accounts of living through experiences that are somewhat comparable to what we’re all going through now.
What becomes apparent in stories—as well as in our own lived experience—is that in the context of a pandemic, our survival and wellbeing call for a very different kind of heroism. Rather than the traditional sort of hero, most of the heroes we need to defeat the pandemic are a kind of dream-team collective who stay inside, practice patience, provide support and encouragement from a distance, and wrestle bravely with isolation and the disruption of routine.
Meanwhile, some of the unique heroes of the pandemic demonstrate their heroism by just going about their essential business—stocking shelves and operating cash registers, delivering food and supplies, responding to crisis calls, and seeing patients—all while exposing themselves to heightened risk of infection.
And, of course, some of the hardest-pressed heroes of this pandemic are those who must find the resources and inner strength to endure hardships of unemployment and economic distress.
The pandemic gives each of us an opportunity to be some kind of a hero. What kind of a hero can you be today? Who have the heroes of the pandemic been for you? We’d love to hear your stories.

As of Thursday, March 26, 2020, precisely at 6:00 a.m., the State of Colorado is under a Stay At Home executive order, issued by Governor Jared Polis. Of course, much of the State was already under local Stay At Home orders issued by county authorities, including Denver, Boulder, Jefferson Counties, and the Tri-County Health order covering Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas Counties. That’s a lot of pages of dense text, with facts and findings, definitions and prohibitions, and other unfriendly phrasing that’s no fun to read. But worry not, dear friends! Thanks to the venerable Julie Reiskin, I, your friendly neighborhood disability rights lawyer, am here to provide an easy-to-read summary.
Of course, since I am a lawyer, I do have to take a moment to provide a brief disclaimer: this does not constitute legal advice and reading this does not create an attorney-client relationship. You may wish to consult with a lawyer before taking any actions that might violate any of the county or state Stay At Home orders.
Now, on to the main event: the orders! All of the Stay At Home orders, whether at the state or county level, are very, very similar. In fact, most use identical verbiage for most of the orders, changing only the name of the locality. There are a few minor differences—Broomfield’s being shortest and to the point, for instance—but the upshot of them all is the same: Stay At Home (as much as possible). Because of these significant similarities, I will focus on the statewide order issued by the Colorado Department of Public Health as part of the Governor’s executive order, but this summary pretty much covers them all.
All of the orders start with some basic introductory stuff, like reciting the facts about the spread of COVID-19 and its health consequences, the history of other public health orders related to the virus, and the intent behind the order. The order itself is pretty straight-forward. All public and private gatherings of any size occurring outside of people’s homes are prohibited. People are also asked to remain at their homes as much as possible. When that’s not possible, try your best to maintain a distance of six feet between yourself and others. The only times you should leave your home is for necessities, like grocery shopping, seeking medical care, getting outside for a bit, or working in or supporting a critical business. Basically, if you need something while staying holed up at home, you can still go out and buy it (including liquor and cannabis (for recreational, curbside delivery only)).
If you work in an essential business, such as those grocery stores, medical offices, and dispensaries, you can go to work. If you work in a job that supports those essential businesses, you can go to work. If you need to help someone or need someone to help you, that can still happen too. If you need gas to drive to the grocery store, you can stop at the gas station. If you work at a restaurant, you can still catch the bus, cab, rideshare, bike or scooter to get you there.
Truly, the exceptions to the general premise of staying at home are enormous! Most of the usual business that we do daily will continue unhampered by the Stay At Home order. Sure, you can’t go hang out at Starbucks with friends, but you can still get a venti dark roast to go and Facetime as you take a leisurely stroll through the park. Just remember to maintain the social distancing that we have all been practicing for days now anyway. Of course, also wash your hands (and don’t forget to sanitize your phone too)!
For now, the order expires just before midnight, April 11, 2020. That may change, and we’ll let you know if it does.
Many of the below resources are landing pages with up-to-date information. This is the first discussion feed post to provide an example of how this platform will work. See below for resources gathered by the Mile High Connects’ Denver Metro COVID-19 Housing Response Strategy community platform.
Doctor’s offices and hospitals aren’t the only ones running out of personal protective equipment. Members of the disability community who rely on home health also use PPE. Here are some ideas if you run out of supplies.
1) Use garbage bags with holes cut out for the head as a disposable, one use gown. It can be worn like a cape and thrown out at the end of the visit.
2) If you have a washing machine, purchase a few pairs of scrubs and request workers to immediately change upon arrival. Wash immediately when the visit is over.
3) Purchase or sew a homemade mask, cut up a t-shirt, or use a bandana. This won’t give adequate protection against COVID-19, but the CDC says bandanas are better than nothing to help reduce any spread of the virus through coughs/droplets from a caregiver to the client. If the caregiver has a cough they should not be working.
4) Substitute washable cleaning gloves for medical gloves. In addition to washing them inside and out, spray them with a solution of bleach and water (10-12 parts water to 1 part bleach).
5) Before wearing gloves, require aides to thoroughly scrub their hands (including finger tips, under nails, and the tops of hands and wrists) immediately upon entry, and have each worker wipe down all surfaces that were touched before hand washing. If no wipes are available, use hot water (with antibacterial dish soap) to wipe down surfaces. If they have to use towels, wash them after each use.

Despite our current situation, life has handed over an opportunity – more time. We still have the same 24-hours in the day, but we have more space in that time to try something new. You may already be exploring hobbies, books, music, or a myriad of other pursuits. Therefore, we’d like to share some other possibilities with you. And the best part – you can do them from home.
Here are a few things you can try. Some may be a better fit than others for you. So, try something, and then try something else. If you have ideas to add, please send them to us at email@example.com.

At CCDC, we are focusing on how to spread our messages to make a significant change and build power within our community. Each week we have two virtual meetings in which we use a messaging app called Outvote to connect people through relational organizing. All messaging, which comes directly from CCDC, is sent through OutVote. These messages include things like calling your legislators, signing on to an action letter, or going down to the Capitol to testify – any time we need to rally people to make a change. And, as the name suggests, it is used for everything related to voting!
We will go step by step and show you how to use the Outvote app on your phone or computer and even provide the messages (if you want them) for you to share with your friends, family, providers, or anyone in your contact list.
Right now, our focus is for us to engage in substantial change without leaving the comfort of our homes (or violating the Stay at Home Orders). Join the next Outvote messaging meeting by clicking on this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/3955386232. See you then!
Call your member of Congress: Social Security Beneficiaries Will Receive Stimulus Payments Automatically; SSI-Only & VA-Only Beneficiaries Must File Tax Returns. The Treasury Department announced that millions of low-income seniors and people with disabilities who receive only Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Veterans (VA) Disability Compensation or Veterans Pension benefits to file a tax return to collect their stimulus payment.

Report your advocacy efforts: If your organization is engaged in advocacy on protecting people with disabilities from COVID-19 or if you have been successful at securing action from your state government, we urge you to share details. The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) will be maintaining a page keeping track of advocacy efforts and policy measures to protect the disability community for the duration of the crisis.

Colorado just finalized the candidates for our June primary ballots, and the election is just over a month away! If you didn’t know an election was coming up, you can go to the Colorado Secretary of State’s website at govotecolorado.gov to update your voter registration.
On June 30, voters will vote in party primaries to choose the Democratic and Republican candidates for state office in November’s general election. This includes offices for the state legislature and Colorado’s U.S. Senate seat, and it’s our final statewide election before this November.
Colorado allows you to update your voter registration at any time before Election Day. You still have time to double-check your registration, but don’t procrastinate too long!
Updating your registration allows you to ensure that you get your mail ballot on time, you can change your voter registration to match your current address, and you can update your political party to ensure you get the primary ballot of your choice. If you want to be sure you’re ready for June, head to govotecolorado.gov!
CCDC’s goal is to create a groundswell of support for Medicaid aimed at statewide candidates so that one cannot win a statewide race in Colorado without supporting Medicaid. We want people to educate candidates for office, especially statewide office, about the importance of Medicaid.
“Our goal is that every statewide candidate for any office, of any party, understands the important role Medicaid plays both in the lives of people with disabilities and in Colorado’s health care system.” Read more about the #Vote4MedicaidProject
As we get closer to the presidential election, we will be ramping up our push to get everyone out to vote. Depending on what happens with the pandemic, this may look very different this year. But that might also mean that there will be more for you to do from home.
We need to ensure all of us are involved in the upcoming election. Our voices need to be heard, and you can help through the neighborhood, family, and social organizing. Learn from and work with Dawn Howard from CCDC about using the app OutVote to marshal your neighborhood forces to rally the disability vote. This is just one way to regain some of the power that was lost to the virus. Information is found on the Virtual Events page.
#operationASLStorytime is creating a virtual community for deaf kids. The link above will take you to a list of videos of sign language users reading children’s books.

It’s easy to get bored on a rainy day. You can’t go outside, the kids are all stir-crazy, and you are unsure of what to do now. Just read this article because it has plenty of activities that you can do yourself or with the family. Make sure to share it with your family and friends so that they can entertain themselves and their families during inclement weather. Maybe, they’re in the same boat wondering what to do, and this list could be handy.

The Denver Division of Disability Rights encourages you to take reasonable steps to prepare yourself and your home for emergencies, while also remaining calm.
Although restaurants and bars have been directed to close to onsite seating for the next eight weeks, many restaurants remain open for delivery, carry-out, and drive-through services. Additionally, most essential businesses and services, such as pharmacies, grocery stores, health care facilities, banks, gas stations, and public transportation options remain open.
It is good practice to have adequate supplies to shelter in your home that can last between 3 -5 days. Suggestions include the following:
In addition to the previously shared guidance regarding preventative actions (wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, stay home when sick), we also recommend the following:
The Denver Department of Public Safety provides residents with disabilities an opportunity to submit information about yourself or other members of your household who have disabilities in order to help 911 respond appropriately during an emergency. Your information will remain confidential and will give officers advance warning about any pertinent information prior to responding during an emergency.
Please find additional information and the form for the registry (located at the bottom of the page) here: Emergency Services Communications for Special Needs Services
The Denver Department of Public Health & Environment will continuously monitor the COVID-19 situation and updates will be communicated through Denvergov.org and the Division of Disability Rights’ email listserv. To be added to the listserv, please send a request to DisabilityAccess@denvergov.org.
Finally, if situations specific to the disability community arise that our division should be made aware of, please email DisabilityAccess@denvergov.org.
You can also communicate any disability-related needs, discrimination, or other question to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In an effort to continue to provide you with an official update from the Governor’s office, below includes the latest steps we are taking to respond to the Coronavirus threat.
We currently have 10,878 cases, 508 deaths, and 2,123 hospitalizations out of 50,645 completed tests. We are thinking of these families and communities during these trying times.
This case data is broken down by various categories, is updated daily and can be found here.
The Governor continues to offer more guidance about the transition from the statewide Stay-At-Home order to the Safer-At-Home order.
The most important thing to understand is that this is not going to be back to normal. It’s not even going to be a major adjustment from where we are right now. It is going to be a period of more sustainable social distancing practices.
Here are some of the key points:
Here is a one-pager that may help with additional questions.
Here’s some specific guidance for the general public and for business owners; sector-specific information will be made available in the coming days.
Remember: non-essential workplaces should be operating at no more than 50% capacity and should allow employees to telework whenever possible. If during stay at home they were able to successfully telecommute 100% of their employees- keep doing that!
Here are some best practices you should be implementing to protect your workplaces, your employees, your customers, and the public at large.
Coloradans did a good job staying at home as a state and as a result, according to our modeling, we no longer need a state-wide stay-at-home order. But each community is in a different situation with regard to COVID-19.
Many local municipalities, especially those with large populations or in areas where there are hotspots, may continue to have more restrictive rules in place. Others may have very few or even zero cases of COVID-19.
Local and County governments have three options:
Here’s a timeline of implementation over the coming days:
Finally, Gov. Polis provided a critical update on the state’s testing capacity. Currently, the state is able to successfully test and isolate 33% of the symptomatic COVID-19 cases in the state within 48 hours. Our plan is to increase that by 5 percentage points each week, which is a reasonable goal. In order to meet the demand for testing supplies, the state has been working around the clock to secure additional testing capability and supplies despite challenges within the supply chain.
Here’s an update on our work:
At the end of the day, Colorado needs to employ an all-of-the-above strategy to defeat the virus. The main components are:

A partir del día de ayer, han existido 10,878 casos, han fallecido 508 personas y se han hospitalizado a 2,123 personas de 50,645 pruebas de detección realizadas. Tenemos a estas familias y comunidades en nuestros pensamientos durante estos tiempos difíciles.
La información de estos datos se divide en varias categorías, se actualiza diariamente y pueden ser revisada aquí.
El Gobernador continúa ofreciendo orientación adicional acerca de la transición de la orden estatal de Permanecer-en-Casa comparado con Más-Seguro-en-Casa.
Lo más importante es comprender que no volveremos a la normalidad inmediatamente. Ni siquiera representa un ajuste significativo desde nuestra situación actual. Este es un período de prácticas de distanciamiento social sostenibles. Estos son algunos de los puntos clave:
Esta es una guía específica para el público en general y para los dueños de negocios; La información específica del sector estará disponible en los próximos días.
Recuerde: los lugares de trabajo no esenciales deben seguir operando a menos del 50% de su capacidad y deben permitir a los empleados trabajar a distancia siempre que sea posible. Si durante la estadía en casa los empleados pudieron trabajar desde casa con éxito al 100%, ¡sigan haciendo eso! Estas son algunas de las mejores prácticas que debe implementar para proteger sus lugares de trabajo, sus empleados, sus clientes y al público en general.
Los residentes de Colorado hicieron un buen trabajo al quedarse en casa, como resultado, de acuerdo a nuestro modelo, ya no necesitamos una orden de Permanecer en Casa en todo el estado. Pero cada comunidad se encuentra en una situación diferente con respecto a COVID-19.
Varios municipios locales, especialmente aquellos con grandes poblaciones o en áreas donde existen puntos críticos, pueden seguir teniendo reglas más restrictivas. Otros pueden tener muy pocos o incluso cero casos de COVID-19.
Los gobiernos locales y del condado tienen tres opciones:
Este es un calendario de implementación en los próximos días:
Finalmente, el gobernador Polis proporcionó una actualización importante sobre la capacidad de aplicación de pruebas del estado. Actualmente, el estado puede aplicar pruebas y aislar con éxito el 33% de los casos sintomáticos de COVID-19 en el estado, en 48 horas. Nuestro plan es aumentar un 5 por ciento cada semana, lo cual es un objetivo razonable. Con el fin de satisfacer la demanda de suministros de pruebas, el estado ha estado trabajando las 24 horas para garantizar la capacidad y los suministros de prueba adicionales a pesar de los desafíos dentro de la cadena de suministro.
Esta es una actualización de nuestro trabajo:
Al final del día, Colorado necesita emplear una estrategia completa para derrotar al virus. Los componentes principales son:
