Revised Protocols Effective 8/17/2021
In our effort to always provide you with the safest environment possible, our sponsoring agency, Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania has been closely following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). So, with the significant rise in the number of COVID cases and change in the CDC’s “substantial transmission status” in our service territory, we have made the decision to temporarily require mask wearing by all employees and members effective Tuesday, August 17, 2021 and until further notice.
At the Union Station Clubhouse and all Goodwill Workforce Development facilities, regardless of your vaccination status, a mask or other approved face covering (including face shields) must be worn indoors in all common areas such as hallways, meeting rooms, elevators, and restrooms. Masks will also be required while in a vehicle with other passengers when conducting Goodwill business. However, you can choose not to wear a mask when working or spending time “alone” in your personal office or workspace, while operating a vehicle, or when eating or drinking. This policy change also applies to all visitors entering any Goodwill Workforce Development location, including the Union Station Clubhouse.
To remind everyone about this change in our mask wearing policy, signs will be updated at the Clubhouse and in all Workforce Development locations. We will also provide additional masks and gloves for members if requested
These changes are being made proactively to help ensure a safe work environment for all. Please understand that these masking guidelines may change again as the transmission status changes throughout our service territory.
To ensure safety and compliance with state and CDC guidelines, the following policies remain in place:
Protective physical measures have been added to the facility such as sneeze guards in common areas as well as protective dividers in the computer lab.
Regular sanitation and disinfecting is done in all areas of the facility
The Clubhouse vans are also up and running, with 100% capacity and assigned seating to maintain social distancing. .
Union Station Clubhouse will also continue to offer virtual services via Zoom, with various meetings as announced at 2:00PM or at other necessary invervals.
We encourage our members to participate in either or both onsite and virtual services!
