Taking Care: Thanks to the CARES Act

Taking Care: Thanks to the CARES Act

The Academy uses funding to create a safer workspace

Thanks to CARES Act funding provided by Sarasota and Manatee Counties, we have purchased and installed clear Plexiglass barriers throughout our building. This was the next step in our implementation of COVID precautionary measures. We continue to screen everyone prior to entry and require use of masks, handwashing and social distancing.

From the moment we walk through the door, the screener (the staff or member who takes our temperature and asks CDC-recommended questions about symptoms and possible COVID-19 exposure) is protected behind Plexiglass. At the front desk, receptionists are kept safe as they sign in members, staff, and visitors. In our dining room, servers communicate with the Culinary team through a protected barrier, and work areas in the kitchen are sectioned off so that members and staff can work side-by-side without risk. Similarly, on the technology side of the building, Plexiglass has been installed between each computer workstation.

We continue to be vigilant during this pandemic, and we are always looking for ways to lower risk of infection and improve on our safety measures. We are indebted to Sarasota and Manatee Counties for their financial assistance in keeping our community safe, so that we can focus on our mission and shared work.
