Our Covid 19 Plan of Action
May 22, 2020 – Governor Whitmer extended the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order to through June 12th, 2020. At SAIL, once the State of Michigan has been opened, SAIL will be determining our next steps for opening our offices to the public. In the meantime, we’re still open to supporting those individuals living with a disability in the U.P. via phone, text, email and videoconferencing. If you have questions, we are here to help!
If you would like to speak to a live person, please call 906-250-2448 or contact your Disability Advocate directly via email. We will still be able to check messages on our regular phone line and will get back to you as soon as possible.
