OUR RESPONSE TO COVID 19

Now more than ever people need to be indoors at night to help stop the spread of the virus. The unhoused includes some of our most vulnerable residents. Many are elderly and most have severe chronic health conditions. 

To ensure that guests and staff are safe, the following protocols have been enacted:

  • No turn over of guests. This prevents exposure to new people each night. 

  • Masks must be worn by guests and staff.

  • Social distancing required at all times.

  • Upon intake, any guest exhibiting coughing, chills, fever or other suspect symptoms are instructed to visit county urgent care and return only with a medical release.

  • Frequent handwashing required.

  • Meals are served at each guests' bedside instead of at tables.

  • Sleeping mats must be 8' apart between guests.

  • All sleeping mats are disinfected daily.

  • All bathroom fixtures are cleaned and disinfected 2/daily.

  • Everyone is instructed to cough into their arm and use hand sanitizer often.

  • While not mandatory, guests are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated per recommended county guidelines. 90% of our guests have been fully vaccinated- well above the county average.
