Community services are now providing 70-80% of  services using telepsychiatry methodology. The Adult and Youth PARCS services are moving towards providing virtual (online) group therapy programmes with the intention of these services not being open for residential admissions as COVID case rates increase.  Inpatient services are unchanged at present.
