Due to recommendations by the CDC and Cook County Public Health, mask use by both clients and volunteers is now required for all indoor visits and rides through Care Partners. While the vaccines work really well, given how contagious this new variant is, and how prevalent it is throughout the state, we want to take this extra step to protect everyone. We have ordered N95 masks and should have a limited number available for use by volunteers or clients within the next week. We also have an assortment of fabric and disposable masks. Please let us know if you need any. We will keep monitoring the situation.
We’re also in the process of informing clients about this policy change, but we’d appreciate your help in spreading the word as well. Contact the Care Partners office if you have any questions or concerns.
Thanks for your flexibility in responding to the changing COVID landscape for the wellbeing of our volunteers and clients!
