The health and safety of our associates and the broader Brunswick and Waycross communities is our top priority. We are saddened to announce that one of our associates at our Brunswick and Waycross Opportunity Centers has tested positive for COVID-19.
We are supporting the affected associate, who is currently self-quarantined and resting at home. Our thoughts are with our associate and we are hoping for a speedy recovery.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have closed two Opportunity Centers effective immediately and have asked other staff to get tested. Associates to be tested also are being asked to self-quarantine for 14 days. All associates under self-quarantine will continue to be paid during their quarantine.
In the meantime, we will sanitize and deep clean the center using a third-party certified COVID cleaning firm. We plan to complete this cleaning within 48 hours.
We will continue to adhere to all CDC prevention guidelines including social distancing and ongoing cleaning and sanitizing. People are our greatest asset, so we will do everything possible to protect our team, customers, donors, and community.
