CBC Office Re-Opening Plan
As North Carolina and Florida have been lessening COVID-19 restrictions for the general population, we have been working on our plans and procedures for reopening CBC programs. As you know, many of the people we serve are vulnerable to serious complications from illnesses such as this coronavirus so we must be careful about how and when we resume our program activities.  New procedures have been written and directors and supervisors are busy preparing to open by in-servicing staff and ensuring that there are enough infection prevention supplies on hand at each location. When offices and programs begin opening, you will see evidence of these new practices.  Staff, students and visitors will be screened before entering any CBC building and they will need to wear face masks or face coverings.  The number of people allowed in each building will be limited in order to ensure appropriate social distancing and you will see tape marks on the floor and lots of signs reminding us of what we need to do in that space in order to keep each other healthy.  Keeping our distance from each other and doing things like wearing masks is not going to be easy.  However, it is the best thing we can do for each other. If you have specific questions about what is happening in your local program, reach out to your Clinical Supervisor or Director. Stay safe and Healthy!

CDC Recommendations for
Cloth Face Coverings
The CDC is now recommending that everyone wear a cloth face covering whenever we go out in the community especially when social distancing is difficult such as the grocery store, pharmacy, and gas stations. Cloth face coverings may slow the spread of the virus and help people who have the virus but don't know it, keep from spreading it to others. So, this is one way we can take care of each other. Here are some guidelines about face coverings: 
  • The mouth and nose need to be fully covered.
  • They should be secured with ties or ear loops
  • They need to include multiple layers of cloth
  • Allow for breathing without restriction
  • Be able to be laundered and machine dried with out damage or loosing shape
  • Not be placed on anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cloth face covering without assistance.
