Friends of BWorks,
Like many of you, our attention is focused on the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of our students, volunteers, and staff. We are closely monitoring this situation through guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as local health officials.
BWorks will temporarily be suspending all public operations till at least 4/3/20. Classes / Volunteering and Retail are all closed. For those of you who have signed children up for classes starting soon, we will contact you through email to discuss your options.
We have begun increased sanitation measures in our building; including access to more hand sanitizers and cleaning high touch surface areas more often both during the day and at the end of each day.
In addition, we are instituting an expanded employee sick leave policy that will cover all staff that encourages them to make healthy choices and stay at home while sick.
For the health and safety of others, please be thoughtful about coming into BWorks if you are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms including fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
With so many unknowns about the coronavirus, we are erring on the side of caution and following recommendations of our health professionals and will continue to make decisions about current conditions that affect BWorks’ programs and volunteering.
Patrick Van Der Tuin
