Message to the Community: Coronavirus Prevention
Goodwill of Western and Northern Connecticut is committed to the health and safety of our customers, donors, clients, program participants, and team members.
Our Proactive Response Team (PRT) has been assembled. They are reviewing recommendations daily from the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and state health officials to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Employees are receiving frequent communication from the PRT about precautions and hygiene routines. All facilities and store locations are frequently disinfecting common touchpoints such as doorknobs, counters, registers, restrooms, shopping carts, computers, and desks.
Goodwill has asked staff to stay home if they are sick. We have also posted flyers at all store entrances asking shoppers to reschedule visits should they exhibit any symptoms.
While Goodwill continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19, our stores, and donation locations remain open for business. However, offices and program facilities are not accepting guests at this time. We have closed Career Centers out of an abundance of precaution but are still operating virtual services to assist the public. Should we become aware of any compromise to the health and safety at any of our locations, Goodwill will act immediately to protect all involved.
The health and safety of our customers, donors, clients, program participants, and team members is our chief priority, and we are committed to doing our part to help keep you safe.
