Certified prevention programs that provide prevention services outside of red zone areas may allow, but not require, staff to resume operating in their office spaces, but must adhere to all business guidance for reopening, including developing specific policies and protocols including guidance specific to office spaces.
WITNYS Prevention

WITNYS is a web-based system that standardizes reporting by certified prevention providers. WITNYS enables providers to develop annual workplans, obtain necessary approvals from Local Governmental Units and OASAS regional office representatives, and report service delivery throughout the year. Guided videos and reference materials are available in the WITNYS system. For technical assistance contact [email protected] or 866-438-3789.
