Curent Safety Precautions (Updated 01-06-22)
CAPTAIN CHS has implemented enhanced safety procedures in light of the increased incidence of COVID-19 within the community and increasing numbers of infections. These procedures are designed to help mitigate the risk of exposure for our staff, volunteers, and clients, while not creating disruption to our service delivery for programs and services.
- All staff, volunteers, clients, and visitors are required to wear a mask in public spaces within buildings and when social distances can't be maintained.
- Staff, volunteers, and clients should not visit the office if feeling ill, and should immediatley notify his/her supervisor if he/she becomes ill while in the office.
- Frequent handwashing, continued cleaning of surfaces, daily monitoring of symptoms, daily sign-ins, and COVID-19 testing for individuals exhibiting symptoms are required.
- Movement between facilities and buildings is restricted to essential travel only; deliveries and interactions will remain socially distanced and touchless.
- Internal meetings between departments are conducted remotely and in-person meetings are restricted to spaces that allow for social distance.
- Client meetings, classes, and external meetings are conducted remotely unless approved by a supervisor.
- All transportation services are engaged in enhanced cleaning procedures before and after every ride, and continuous masking of staff, volunteers, and clients.
- Access to the Clifton Park, Glenville, Saratoga Springs, and Gloversville office will be restricted to staff and scheduled volunteers only; all services are offered touchless or remotely as previously planned.
