If one of our community members is ever potentially exposed, they will receive additional information and contact tracing information.

Overview of Cleaning Procedures In Place

  • Additional maintenance crew members were hired to assist with sanitation of high point areas, for assistance in monitoring social distancing during peak hours (drop off, lunch, pick up), for assistance with immediate clean-up and disinfecting of specific areas, for assisting with installation of new protective equipment, and to maintain adequate levels of cleaning and disinfectant supplies.
