SAN LUIS, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) says it continues to practice social distancing in its offices to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Arizona DES says it has encouraged clients to access DES services virtually online and by phone, while providing limited in-person services for those who do not have access to virtual options.
The San Luis DES office says drop boxes are available for clients who need to submit documentation to DES.
The office says a number of COVID-positive clients have attempted to visit the DES office in San Luis to provide documentation of their illness, which is not needed to access any benefits provided by DES.
The office is working to message throughout the community that this documentation is not needed, and sick individuals should stay home in accordance with CDC and ADHS guidelines.
Beginning next week, the San Luis office will temporarily be providing virtual services until this messaging can be completed, and services can safely resume.
