In an effort to ensure the safety of participants and staff, participants will be required to follow certain procedures that comply with the CDC as well as CAIL-mandated safety protocols:
- No one will be permitted to enter the building who: feels ill, has a temperature of 100.0 or over, is experiencing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 infection symptoms, or has recently been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
- Face masks covering the mouth and nose are required before entering the front doors (or if a mask is needed from CAIL, then as soon as enter check-in area) and ending once fully out the front doors. Masks are required to be worn at all times in the building, except to eat or drink.
- Everyone (employees, vendors, program participants) entering the building will be required to complete the COVID-19 Risk Assessment Questionnaire on a daily basis, to be reviewed by CAIL staff before further entry.
- In addition to wearing masks, participants and staff must maintain social distancing by maintaining a minimum six-foot separation from each other, and an even greater separation will be maintained to the extent practical.
- Upon entry, everyone is encouraged to wash hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. In the event soap and water are not available, sanitizer with an alcohol content of 60% or more may be used. Time will be allotted throughout the day to allow for frequent washing of hands.
- Anyone who develops symptoms related to COVID-19 while at the building must notify program staff. They will be isolated until appropriate transportation to home and/or doctor can be obtained. Others in the building will be notified of any confirmed or likely exposure to COVID-19, while following HIPAA protocols. Appropriate health authorities will be notified and their guidance followed.
- Participants should strive to not borrow or loan items to or from another person unless absolutely necessary. If necessary, you should strive to disinfect the item.
- The CAIL building will be cleaned and disinfected with cleaners recommended by the CDC nightly, including high-touch areas and shared spaces.
Guidance will be reviewed regularly and updated as necessary. [v 8/4/20]
