I am writing concerning the impact of coronavirus on our work. As of right now, it is our intention to continue working. We are taking extra precautions and want to inform you of potential delays in the completion of final work products and options for trainings. Truthfully, we don’t know how things will evolve, so here is the plan as of right now:
The Flatley Read office is now effectively closed and our staff working remotely from home. Calls to the office phone will be directed to voicemail and checked regularly during business hours. If you have questions or are in need of assistance, please be sure to leave us a voicemail or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We intend to continue with all scheduled trainings with a maximum capacity of 10 persons. If you would like to take a training but have limited ability to come to the office or are in a high-risk pool please call and leave a message. We will make arrangements to make sure to meet your training needs.
Field work will continue as scheduled with the following precautions:
- We will call to confirm with homeowners that they are prepared for a home visit, let them know about precautions we will use, and inquire whether there is anyone who is feeling ill or has been in contact with someone with coronavirus.
- We have implemented an extended sick leave policy. If anyone is feeling ill, or someone in their family is feeling ill, they are to self-quarantine and we will reassign or reschedule appointments.
- All equipment will be sanitized before and after each site visit. Field staff will wear latex gloves while in a home.
- Work that requires lab results will depend on the availability of the lab and the timely delivery of samples. Unfortunately lab turnaround time is out of our control.
These measures will continue as long as the local school district remains closed, and we hope to continue provision of services to the greatest extent possible.
Please keep in touch and let us know how we can accommodate you during this unusual time.
We’re all in this together.
