         Prepare for the Unexpected

We must always consider what our UPHS member agencies can do to best prepare for COVID-19. As the outbreak continues to spread, agencies will face a wide range of impacts, including:
• Increased and sustained staff/volunteer absences,
• Disruption of services to your clients and communities,
• Disruption of supplies and services provided by your vendors,
• Cancellation of programs or events (and corresponding reduced revenue),
• Increased demand for services/support from your clients and communities,
• Budgetary implications related to strains on the economy.

COMMUNICATE

Employers play an important role in educating and reassuring employees, volunteers and visitors during this pandemic.

POLICIES & PROCEDURES

Review your policies related to illness and sick leave to ensure your procedures and practices are consistent with public health recommendations, as well as, workplace laws.

RISK ASSESSMENT

When it comes to planning special events and program/service re-opening - make sure your organization assesses its risk to mitigate or exacerbate community spread.

STAY INFORMED

Check back regularly to this UPHS resource page, our newsletters, as well as, check credible websites such as the Florida Department of Health and the US Center for Disease Control for information pertaining to COVID-19.
