KCCI and COVID-19
Facebook Post: March 12, 2020
To our beloved Kansas City Metropolitan Community,
This morning Mayor Quinton Lucas of Kansas City, MO declared a state of emergency due to the spreading Coronavirus or COVID-19. The Kansas City Center for Inclusion takes your health and well being very seriously. That being said, we have decided collectively, to close our drop-in operations at this time until our public health officials announce more information regarding the spread of COVID-19. However, the Kansas City Center for Inclusion will remain open for organizations that have reserved center space for their activities and meetings. In order to keep our commitment to these organizations, we have invested in CDC (Center for Disease Control) approved sanitation products and will be implementing a rigorous regimen every day the center remains open for these reserved meetings. Check our Facebook page frequently for updates regarding the re-opening of our facility for drop-in operations as well as our larger community events such as the Equality Teen Prom, Community Leadership Forum, and Pride related activities.
Per the Center for Disease Control’s recommendations, we ask of our community to stay home if you are feeling sick or are in close proximity to someone who is sick, rethink entering public spaces with large quantities of people if you have an underlying medical condition, to utilize hand sanitizer with an alcohol content of 60% or higher, and frequently wash your hands to avoid the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We also encourage everyone to utilize the Center for Disease Control’s website www.cdc.gov for more information regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as following the Center for Disease Control on Twitter @CDCgov to immediate updates.
If you have questions or are in immediate need please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to assist you in finding the resources that you are in need of.
Stay healthy and vigilant,
Kansas City Center for Inclusion Board of Directors
