NeighborImpact is committed to providing crucial services while preserving the health of the individuals and families we serve. We have employed strict Coronavirus (COVID-19) prevention protocol that includes:
- Increased janitorial cleaning
- Electronic staff meetings
- Removal of shared toys, food and office supplies
- Prioritization of mail, email and phone calls over in-person contact where possible
- Hourly hand washing
- Frequent and systematic sanitizing of all doors, bells, switches, plumbing fixtures, electronic equipment, water dispensers, seating, pens and surfaces
- Installation of portable hand-washing stations at the entrances of most facilities
- Mandatory sick leave for those exhibiting symptoms
- Remote work for immune compromised employees
- Shortened work week
- Drop-boxes at every location for paperwork to be submitted with no contact
- Staff assist clients outside in order to limit contact with office doors and lobbies
We are acting in accordance with public health officials on all recommendations regarding Coronavirus. All of our office lobbies, classrooms and facilities are equipped with hand sanitizers, tissues and staff dedicated to monitoring and preventing the spread of Coronavirus.
All Head Start classrooms and the Early Head Start program are currently operating remotely. The closure is in coordination with Governor Kate Brown’s announced closure of all public schools through the end of the school year. Click here for more information about Head Start distance learning.
All in-person trainings and workshops are canceled, moving to online delivery where possible.
Outlying NeighborImpact offices in Prineville and La Pine are closed. Residents will still be able to access all services through neighboring offices in Redmond and Bend, and online.
All NeighborImpact offices are closed on Fridays.
