Each site has a safety plan that includes:

  • Staff training;
  • Pre-registration and limited numbers to ensure physical distancing;
  • Sending home any participant or staff displaying symptoms;
  • Physical alterations, such as Plexiglas barriers and alternative entrances, to ensure distancing;
  • Changes to practices and programs to reduce touchpoints; and
