COVID-19 Response: Enhanced Safety Measures
Rite of Passage’s leadership team is continuing to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and is working diligently to protect our employees and the youth in our care.
Providing a safe and sanitary program environment is the best way for ROP to minimize the risk of exposure to the virus. ROP implemented all-staff messaging through electronic communication providing updates on our established pandemic plan. The established pandemic plan is currently being implemented at all sites and includes enhanced safety and sanitation measures to disinfect facilities, screen visitors, monitor staff and students with flu-like symptoms, reinforce health and hygiene protocols and reduce non-essential interactions with the community-at-large. These protocols are in accordance with the guidelines and recommendations from the CDC and local health authorities.
