Dear Central Florida Urban League Community:
With all the uncertainty and fear that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has caused, the Central Florida Urban League wanted to assure our network that we are taking the appropriate steps to address this crisis.
Our team has devised an agency-wide response plan that follows the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local health agencies and government officials.
It is our goal to provide a safe and healthy environment for our staff, board members, volunteers, clients and guests.
In keeping with the CDC’s three-tiered risk-assessment for community organizations, we will adhere to the following:
Level 1- Preparedness (Sporadic Transmission Level)
CFUL Response: Monitoring and Education
- Inform staff and the general public regarding the level of threat to our local community along with preventative measures;
- Engage in workplace illness prevention for employees by encouraging common-sense health precautions recommended by CDC;
- Increase the frequency of office cleanings.
Level 2 - Minimal/Moderate (Cluster Transmission Level)
CFUL Response: Social Distancing
- Implement a "social distancing" policy that will stop or slow the spread of highly contagious diseases. Our social distancing response may include reduced exposure to high-traffic events and limited attendance at community gatherings and events;
- Expand access for team members to work remotely;
- Prepare team members and the community for the potential transition to a virtual service delivery model (Level 3), which may include canceling face-to-face meetings, events and case management.
Level 3 - Substantial (Population Transmission Level)
CFUL Response: Virtual Service Delivery
- The Central Florida Urban League's office will close to the public. Programs and service delivery will be conducted virtually.
