Dear Members of The Arc Family,
The Arc of Cape May County is closely monitoring the ongoing developments related to Coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of the people we support, employees and all community members are our priority. We have prepared a Coronavirus Response Plan to be proactive in efforts to control the chances for a possible community spread.
What we are doing:
- Increased the frequency of cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting our facilities by staff and commercial cleaning partners.
- Agency leadership has been meeting on a regular basis to discuss updated information and ensure that we are prepared for any situation.
- Increased reminders to staff and consumers to follow recommended hygiene practices.
- Continue to monitor and implement recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and state and local health departments.
To protect our service recipients from exposure to the Coronavirus we ask that if you or your loved ones have any cold or flu-like symptoms to remain home. Likewise, please know any of our staff that are not feeling well are instructed not to come to work. We recommended following preventive measures for your health per the CDC.
We know that caring for yourself and your loved ones are your most important concerns right now. We will do our best to help. Thank you again for being a valued member of our Arc family. Be assured we will continue to vigilantly monitor the evolving situation and will respond and communicate accordingly.
Wishing you continued good health,
