What We Are Doing

The Melwood leadership team has been hard at work putting together a comprehensive reopening plan which follows federal, state, and county public health guidelines.

As part of the reopening plan, there will be some new rules on Melwood campuses:

  • Melwood employees must wear masks. Participants will be encouraged, but not be required, to wear masks.
  • People on campus will practice social distancing – keeping 6 feet apart from each other.
  • Access to common areas will be limited to comply with social distancing guidance. Please observe the posted signs.
  • We will be conducting mandatory temperature screenings at each building that houses a day service program.

In the event any participant, staff or visitor show signs of illness, Melwood will follow the CDC guidelines and send that person home. Signs of illness include:

  • Fever of 100 or greater
  • Dry cough
  • Muscle aches
  • Shortness of breath

While arrangements are being made to send the sick individual home, that individual will be quarantined on site. If a participant or employee has displayed symptoms of COVID-19, they must self-quarantine for 14 days and a doctor’s note will be required prior to returning to campus.

We will continue to monitor federal, state, and local public health guidelines and make course corrections as necessary.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation. You can find more information about the new rules in the FAQs below.
