The Arc's COVID-19 Guidelines
The Arc has updated its COVID-19 policy to reflect current public health recommendations. Regardless of vaccination status, masks are now optional for all clients, volunteers, and staff members during Arc activities and while riding Arc vans.
In the interest of protecting the health of our Arc family, please review the CDC’s current guidance on isolation and precautions for people with COVID-19. Note that you should isolate if you are sick and suspect that you have COVID-19 but do not yet have test results. If your results are positive, you should isolate from others for at least five days. If your results are negative, you may end your isolation. Similarly, please also review the CDC’s guidelines on what to do if you are exposed to COVID-19, which involve masking around others for 10 days and monitoring for symptoms.
In general, we ask all members of The Arc family to be mindful of the multiple winter illnesses circulating and to take precautions to keep yourself and others safe and healthy. Please be aware that Arc staff and drivers will use discretion to request that clients and volunteers wear a mask or stay home if concerns arise regarding symptoms or exposure.
Thank you for continuing to support the health and wellbeing of our Arc family!
