A Great Idea for Center's Consideration!
Thank you to executive director Michele Bruhn of PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center (CTRC) in Longmont for notifying the association of this important information centers might be able to effectively replicate.
Michelle reports having success in reaching out to her local county public health agency regarding vaccinations for center staff. As a direct result of contacting her local agencies, she was pleased to inform us that CTRC staff and therapists were added to the list for Phase 1B for vaccinations against COVID-19. Her county informed her they were added to second Phase 1B due to:
- Center staff being direct care workers with individuals who fall in the at-risk category for the virus
- Programs put center staff in direct contact and within six-feet of individuals with health concerns, and an array of disabilities.
- Center staff is also in direct contact with numerous volunteers who are at risk due to age.
Check with your local health agencies to see if this is a possibility that could not only promote the health of your workforce but also assure your volunteers, families and community that the center is taking every available precaution to offer safe services.
