What Safer-at-Home Means for You and The IC
Starting this week, Colorado is transitioning from the stay-at-home order to the safer-at-home phase. Although residents are no longer ordered to stay at home, we are being strongly encouraged to do so whenever possible. However, those considered at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 are being asked to continue following stay-at-home recommendations, only leaving home for medical care and essential activities.
I encourage you to read more about the new safer-at-home phase and what that means to you at https://covid19.colorado.gov/safer-at-home.
So what does this mean for The Independence Center? While some non-critical businesses have started reopening with restrictions and reduced staff, here at The IC our physical buildings remain closed to outside visitors, with only essential personnel working onsite. We are working on a plan for a gradual reopening but we’re taking it one step at a time. We must ensure that we have the proper precautions in place to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and keep our staff and our consumers safe. As soon as we have a plan, we will make sure you know.
In the meantime, please remember that The Independence Center’s staff is still here for you if you need peer support, advocacy, or other services during this time. Just call us at 719-471-8181 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
