Dear Friends and Families,
The health and safety of our clients, staff and stakeholders are our highest priority amid concerns about the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are continually monitoring information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and federal, state and local agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Community Care Licensing (CCL) to ensure the actions we are taking are in keeping with the latest recommendations and guidance.
We have increased the frequency of our already stringent sanitation standards. Staff members are sanitizing our frequently touched hard surfaces twice per day. We are asking everyone to wash their hands when the arrive. We are also prompting everyone to wash their hands several times per day, especially before eating, after using the restroom, and after coughing or sneezing. Tissue and hand sanitizer are available throughout the building and we are frequently discussing best practices with clients and staff on ways to prevent the spread of illness.
CCL has issued the following guidance:
"At this time, community transmission of COVID-19 has occurred in California. Facilities should prepare for possible impacts of COVID-19 and take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as well as other infectious diseases, including influenza and gastroenteritis."
As is usual practice, we ask those who are feeling unwell or exhibiting signs of illness to please stay home. We recognize this is a difficult situation for everyone. The CDC, HHS, CCL, and FNRC websites offer resources for information and precautionary measures to protect the health of our community.
We will update information as it becomes available as the situation is evolving rapidly. Should the guidance change notification will follow. In the meantime, please feel free to call us with questions or concerns at 530.242.0173.
