Grandfather Home for Children of Children’s Hope Alliance has begun admitting new children into its therapeutic and rehabilitative services.

The Avery Journal reports Grandfather Home for Children has been operating in a limited capacity under COVID-19 restrictions, but now, Grandfather Home has set up an interim home where new children are monitored by medical staff, and after two weeks, are placed in other homes on campus once they are cleared.

According to the report, several staff displayed symptoms of COVID-19 but no one tested positive.

As with other schools in the state, the campus’s charter school, Grandfather Academy, is also closed. Grandfather Home closed all offices and group homes under the Governor's restrictions, but has continued to offer services to children in smaller numbers.
