Curative Connections is excited to reopen its doors to the community. However, we understand the importance of doing our part to keep our clients and staff safe while reducing the spread of COVID-19. Because of this, Curative Connections has implemented the following safety guidelines:
- All people entering the building will be screened for wellness and risk. At the west entrance, all clients and staff will check in at the Meridian temperature reader. Program or nursing staff will use hand held laser thermometers for clients or staff unable to use the Meridian device. People whose temperatures are above 100.4 will not be allowed to remain at Curative.
- All staff will be required to wear masks, while clients will be encouraged to do so. Curative will provide 3 cloth masks for each client.
- Staff and clients alike will maintain physical distancing throughout the day, a minimum of six feet. Our physical space within the programs—which include tables, desks and chairs—will be reconfigured to foster this physical distancing.
- Staff will wear gloves and face masks for personal care assistance.
- Curative will have reminder messaging throughout our building to reinforce hand washing, proper sneeze and cough protocols, and physical distancing.
Curative’s main location has a variety of disinfecting resources and processes in place:
- At the building’s entrances there are hand sanitizers that people should use when they enter and exit.
- Disinfecting wipes are in place in program spaces, offices and vehicles.
- Programs have disinfecting wipe containers on each table, and staff will wipe down tables mid-morning, after lunch and at the end of the program day, and more frequently as needed.
- Each day prior to the beginning of services, the building is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, including bathrooms, floors, surfaces, door handles, and kitchen spaces.
Transportation personnel will use the following process for transporting clients to Curative Connections programming and other locations in Brown County:
- All personnel will wear masks during client transports.
- Prior to clients boarding the vehicle, personnel will ask clients if they feel well and use a laser scanner to take their temperatures, adhering to the parameters below.
- If the temperature is below 100.4 they will be allowed to transport.
- If the temperature is above 100.4 they will not be allowed to transport. Personnel will contact the dispatch office to inform them of the client’s illness. If the rider was coming to Curative for services, Transportation staff will contact program staff to inform them of the client’s illness.
- Clients will be encouraged, but not required, to wear masks.
- Each of our vehicles is equipped with disinfecting wipes, which drivers will use on surfaces after each trip.
- Our busses will carry no more than three people so that we can maintain six feet of physical distancing.
