Thank you! I appreciate your reply. I think we can do a better job opening up a discussion with our clients and involving them in this process. Hopefully that will create more of a sense of community and responsibility for slowing the spread. Thanks so much!
I know these questions were posted a few days ago, but I am wondering about what next steps are after you ask the incoming client all of this. If a client were to decline to self-quarantine or wear a mask like the questions are asking, does that mean they could not come into shelter?
My shelters are also not staffed 24-hours (we only staff from 9-5 Monday-Friday), so we really have no way of knowing or ensuring that clients are maintaining quarantine procedures or respecting the protocols that we put in place. I’m wondering if anyone has any recommendations for impressing upon clients the serious nature of this crisis and ensuring that the safety of all clients and staff within the shelter is a priority for everyone.
