Like many of you, we
are concerned about
the occurrence of the
continue to closely monitor recommendations
and protocols established by the
World Health Organization (WHO) and the US
Centers of Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC)
and how the spread of this virus
might impact the volunteer activities
we engage in in our communities.
Many of our activities involve working with at-risk populations
such as the elderly or those
with pre-existing conditions. It is very important
that you exercise
strict adherence to the preventative actions
recommended by the WHO
and CDC when working with these
populations. We have attached a copy of the
CDC’s recommendations for preventing the spread of the virus.
Avoiding large gatherings of people is one of the
recommendations for preventing the
spread of the
virus. This may mean postponing volunteer events
in your communities. We
encourage you to error
on the side of caution when determining whether to
hold or attend events.
As of today, the Pioneers Headquarters remain open for business.
However, the governor of Colorado has declared a state of emergency as we
have had reported
cases of the virus in the
region. Should Pioneers need to close the
offices, we will
communicate with you immediately and often about the status.
Please be safe and keep others
safe. Yours in Pioneering,
