The COVID-19 pandemic has presented us with numerous challenges in society, workplaces, and our homes. It has forced continuing adaptation to change while trying to keep volunteers, staff, clients, and their families safe. 

 

Effective November 22, 2021, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination for all volunteers and staff providing onsite services will be required. Those who have not been vaccinated or are not fully vaccinated (second dose by November 1st) will need to show a negative COVID test.
