Welcome to the New Normal for All of Us
Hannah's House has remained open throughout the pandemic as we provide essential services. I am grateful to announce that we have had no COVID-19 issues among staff or clients! We now have 3 months of experience with maintaining a safe environment for all of our clients, staff and volunteers.
We continue to follow the disinfecting procedures we followed throughout the Great Pause, and we are now adding plastic barriers that will be placed between clients and staff for each of our family rooms.
Cloth masks are available free to any client or family member who needs one. A neighborhood volunteer made 50 masks for our families as a donation. Debra Silva is definitely one of our heroes!
And now? Together we will discover together a new and positive path into our shared futures.
- No one with symptoms will be admitted to the building - screening questions are answered at the video monitor prior to admission. Applies to each person and any members of their household. This includes staff.
- If a client is required to reschedule due to symptoms will not be rescheduled until they have been symptom free without medications for a period of 72 hours.
- Masks must be worn by all persons while inside the facility.
- Socially distancing markers are placed throughout the facility at 6 foot intervals and all persons are required to maintain that required distance.
- All persons are required to wash hands or use hand sanitizer upon entering the facility.
- When it is time for a family to eat together, the members will socially distance from each other as the masks will have to be removed.
- All toys, objects used during a session inside one of our Family Rooms must be placed in the basket by the door. Disinfectant sprays are in each room for parents who wish to disinfect during family time.
Basis for our C-19 policies as we move forward:
- Evolving research on transmission of new virus
- Local public health guidelines
- San Diego County guidelines
