In Red Wing, the story at ProAct is much the same each day.

“We hear time and time again from the participants, their home staff and their family members how much they want to be working,” said Case Manager Heidi Befort. “We get a lot of phone calls and also hear from them during conference calls or Skype meetings.”

Befort provided a phone screen shot of one participant’s requests. Debra Kallin had this to say: “Governor Tim, Do we have to stay home again until this Virus stops? I don’t like this at all. I need to work. I need to walk on the elliptical. I can get my exercise in and my steps in. Please let us go back to work. Thanks.”
