Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), DVIS will begin operating on a scaled back workforce at all locations though May 15, 2020. The agency is still offering their full breadth of services, but they may look different as DVIS encourages as many employees as possible to work from home as a means of social distancing.
Many victims of domestic or sexual violence are not aware that they can seek safety now from abuse. Even though the City of Tulsa is currently under a stay-at-home order, it specifically clarifies that individuals are allowed to leave their homes for health and safety reasons, which includes abuse.
