CAB, which stands for the Cambria County Association for the Blind and Handicapped, provides job opportunities and services to persons with disabilities. Last March when Covid-19 struck, Pennsylvania's governor decreed that all non-essential businesses in Pennsylvania must close. Fortunately CAB was deemed an essential business, however many of our employees with disabilities are among the most vulnerable, and that high-risk group was mandated to stay at home. So when faced with the threat of Covid-19, CAB did what we do best. Our professional staff formulated a plan, adapted, and went into action. Our employees with disabilities followed government requirements and did not come to work. Almost our entire administrative staff shifted to our Ebensburg division and focused on our metals forming operations. Our supervisors, management, sales team, and rehabilitation staff rolled up their sleeves and started [...]
