Update: Communication To Vriendschap Village Employees
March 13, 2020
As an Employee First organization, our employees are our top priority. Without you, we couldn’t love and care for our residents — and your dedication to our mission of creating the absolute best experiences for those we serve is something we never take for granted. For this reason, we put your safety first, and we always adhere to the highest standards to maintain your well-being.
Due to ever-changing information around COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are writing to inform you that we are adhering to the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as following our established protocols that go beyond the standard measures for protecting our employees from any seasonal illnesses and viruses in our community. Our protocols include:
- We are providing free meals to all employees during their shifts.
- We are taking extra precautionary measures to ensure all of our employees are able to perform the responsibilities of their role; in the event an employee cannot fulfill their duties, we will work with them on a suitable solution.
- We are following the same protocols for employees as we are for essential visitors; we are checking temperatures of all employees and filling out a questionnaire with their information. We ask that you are honest about recent travel or any illness you may be experiencing as this protects you, your peers and those we serve.
If you feel ill, immediately go to your leader. We understand we are facing unique circumstances, and in the event you are experiencing symptoms of any illness, we will work with you to keep both you and our community safe.
We will be in constant communication as governmental requirements change that may impact us and/or information about our protocols is updated. Thank you for your commitment to our residents and families, and for your understanding as we work to keep our community as safe as possible. If you have any questions, please connect with your leader.
