The list below are procedures we are requiring all of our staff to take during this pandemic. We are posting it to reassure our clients and all those we know that we are doing everything we can to keep from spreading this virus.

Given the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the U.S. in recent weeks, all DBJ staff members are required to follow these guidelines in an effort to keep our clients and all of you, our valued staff, healthy and safe. We are all in this together.

  • The morning prior to a scheduled session, you are required to take your temperature. If you have a fever, you must stay home and alert the DBJ Office.

  • Wash your hands often – Use soap and water and wash for at least 30 seconds, or if soap and water are not available use hand sanitizer that is at least 90% alcohol, if you have access to it.

    • When you arrive at a client’s home, wash your hands immediately and then once each hour you are there. The Project Lead will set an alarm every hour to alert everyone it’s time to wash your hands.

  • Do not touch your face.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw it in the trash. If a tissue is

    not available, use your elbow (not your hands) and turn away from any people nearby.

  • We are temporarily pausing hand shaking with all clients, colleagues, and guests –

    this is for your own protection and theirs. While this can be difficult in a supportive community like ours, a wave, a bow, a smile, placing hands over heart or whatever feels authentic to you will work.

  • Health care providers are requesting that anyone with fever, cough, or shortness of breath contact the doctor or hospital in advance of going and follow any procedures they have in place.

  • If you are feeling sick, stay home from work. We are monitoring our workplace safety, and in order to do that it is important that you notify Julie if you will be out of the office due to any illness. Any specific medical information will be kept confidential.

  • Immediately notify Julie if you were exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or if you were exposed to someone who has been put in quarantine due to possible contact with someone with COVID-19.

  • If you have recently traveled to areas where COVID-19 is widespread, or are planning travel to these areas soon, let Julie know.

  • Depending on the circumstances we may ask that you work from home for a period of time, take a leave of absence if working from home is not possible, and/or obtain a return to work certification from your health care provider before returning to work.

  • Clean and disinfect surfaces often.

  • Internally, we are taking the following steps:

  • We are thinking through our options if a large-scale quarantine or other directive

    should occur.

  • If, for any reason, you do not feel comfortable going on a job, that is fine. Please

    provide the DBJ Office with as much advance notice as possible so we can schedule someone else.
