RE: COVID-19, Corona Virus
Dear Renaissance Family,
The Renaissance leadership team have been closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 over the past month. We have been making preparations and taking action in response to this swiftly changing situation. Our goals are to deliver on our mission while protecting health and safety of our consumers and dedicated employees. We will do this by minimizing the potential spread of the disease, both at our programs and the broader community.
At this time, we are practicing business as usual, but we are working on contingency plans, should the need arise. We are assessing what the impact could be if we are forced to shift to essential services only, recognizing that many of the services Renaissance provides are essential, and health and safety needs must still be met. We are working with our district staff and program managers in developing emergency procedures to cope with this developing situation including Social Distancing, reduction of outside activities and rescheduling of routine (non-urgent) medical appointments. We are also working closely with our CMH partners as we get through the next few weeks.
We appreciate your efforts and dedication given to our consumers and to Renaissance. We will get through the COVID-19 crisis… together.
Thank you, sincerely,
