We know you are probably receiving many emails this week with COVID-19 in the subject line. Like many of you, Buncombe Partnership for Children is making some hard decisions aimed at protecting the health of our community. After carefully weighing our options and our responsibility to training participants, trainers, our staff, and the children and families that we all serve, we are taking the following actions starting March 16, 2020:
- All non-health related trainings scheduled through mid-April are cancelled or postponed – check the training calendar.
- CPR/First Aid will proceed as scheduled with reduced enrollment to allow for appropriate distance between participants and to eliminate sharing of CPR mannequins, etc for now. We will let you know if this changes.
- In-person Child Care Resources staff visits are cancelled for at least the next two weeks so that staff who travel from program to program do not inadvertently carry germs with them.
- We will closely monitor the COVID-19 situation in our community and reassess this policy at the end of the month. All BPFC’s Child Care Resources staff will be available for phone, Zoom, and email consultation.
Please do not hesitate to reach out during this stressful time.
Thank you as we work together to protect the health of our community.
