Safety Measures

  • Catholic Charities staff members will be required to check for flu-like symptoms as well as their temperature each day before working. If they have flu-like symptoms or a fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater they will not be allowed to work that day and may return to work once those symptoms have subsided for at least 24 hours.
  • Staff members will also be wearing masks, and there will be hand sanitizing stations throughout the building. Cleaning of areas with antibacterial cleaner will be done throughout the day as well as at the end of the day of services. Social distancing will also be practiced, and in the case of where a staff member and participant need to work closely, plexiglass separators are available for use between the two individuals.
  • All visitors will be required to wear a mask and be symptom-free of flu-like symptoms as well as have a temperature of less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • We also ask that participants check for flu-like symptoms and a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or more before coming for services, and if either of these are present, to remain at home until symptom-free for at least 24 hours. Staff members will ask participant (or person transporting participant) if they have been symptom free for at least 24 hours upon arrival, and will take an infrared scan for temperature as well. Participants with a temperature of 100 Fahrenheit or greater and/or flu-like symptoms will be sent home and may return once they are symptom free for at least 24 hours.
  • When services resume, the Adult Programming will refrain from outings until we feel that community outings are safe for all involved.
  • All participants will need to bring in their own lunches. Lunches will not be prepared at Catholic Charities. Pre-packaged items from stores will still be provided for snacks.

For questions below, “participant” refers to the participant named at the beginning of the survey.
