SCHFH COVID-19 Virus Policy/Procedure

Dear Habitat for Humanity supporter,
          I am writing to provide an update about the measures Stanly County Habitat for Humanity is taking to protect our staff, volunteers and the people we serve during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. These measures are based on guidance from Habitat for Humanity International and local, state and national public health authorities. We are continually monitoring the situation, and our approach may change as new guidance is provided. Given the current circumstances in our area, our builds will continue. In addition, our ReStore is temporarily closed due to remodel, but we are still available to pick up donations or handle your drop offs. (Please call to schedule.) We will send out additional updates as conditions change. While we continue to move forward, we do ask that if you feel unwell or have traveled recently to one of the areas designated by the CDC as level 3 or on a cruise ship, you refrain from joining a Habitat event or build or visiting or calling for a pickup at our Habitat ReStore or office. Similarly, if a member of your household has potentially been exposed to the virus through travel or other means, seek medical guidance and refrain from participating in any Habitat-related events, including volunteering or shopping in our ReStore[s]. We realize your health is your top priority. Should you decide not to volunteer or attend a build or event as previously planned, please let us know so that we can adjust our plans accordingly. In the meantime, please see the attached health guidelines document that offers advice from the World Health Organization on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Download Guidelines Here

Blessings,

Please know that we are constantly monitoring the situation and will update our plans as new details emerge. Thank you for your continued support as we navigate this public health crisis together.
