Our COVID-19 Response,
With COVID-19 on the rise again in the United States and the new Delta strain emerged, we at MUST are actively and continually educating ourselves and staying updated on CDC guidelines and state protocols. The safety of our mentees and mentors and staff is critically important to us, and the executive team has come together to mandate some safety measures going forward for ALL STAFF & participants.
Transportation - Masks will be worn while driving in vehicles by both mentors and mentees. We are also taking extra guidelines, when weather permits, our mentors will drive with two windows down to ensure airflow. All vehicles will be equipped with hand sanitizer to provide to mentees as they enter and leave the mentor’s vehicle.
Event Mask Requirement - Extra masks will be available for all mentees. Mentors & mentees must wear masks during indoor events and follow CDC or local business guidelines.
Cleaning and Sanitizing - Before pick up and after youth drop-off, MUST staff will clean and sanitize their vehicle by wiping the seats and door handles with sanitizing wipes or spraying with disinfectant spray.
We are keeping a close eye on the new Delta variant and the rise of COVID-19 and the safety of our staff and mentees is our top priority.
