Office Clo­sure: On-Site Ser­vices Going Remote Begin­ning Decem­ber 28th2021

****Update from Jan­u­ary 18th2022****

Our on-site group ser­vices have resumed. Safe­ty pro­to­cols remain in place to con­tin­ue to assure the safe­ty of all clients, employ­ees, and volunteers.

****Update from Jan­u­ary 10th, 2022*****

We are hap­py to announce that most KYC loca­tions and ser­vices will be open for on-site busi­ness on 1/10/22. We will con­tin­ue to mon­i­tor and ten­ta­tive­ly plan for the re-open­ing for on-site group ser­vices on Jan­u­ary 18th, includ­ing PSR, SUPR, and the LGBTQ+ Cen­ter (as a reminder, offices are closed on the 17th for Dr. Mar­tin Luther King Jr. Day). The Drop-In Cen­ter is ten­ta­tive­ly sched­uled to re-open for on-site ser­vices on Jan­u­ary 17th (the Drop-In Cen­ter will con­tin­ue serv­ing our com­mu­ni­ties on Dr. Mar­tin Luther King Jr. Day).

KYC will con­tin­ue to mon­i­tor this sit­u­a­tion close­ly as pos­i­tiv­i­ty rates change, how­ev­er, we feel con­fi­dent with the pro­to­cols we have in place to pro­vide the need­ed ser­vices to our clients in a safe envi­ron­ment. Those pro­to­cols include staff vac­ci­na­tion require­ments, rec­om­mend­ed boost­ers, mask­ing, social dis­tanc­ing, and hand hygiene.

We will remain vig­i­lant and will con­tin­ue to assure the safe­ty of all employ­ees, clients, and volunteers.

Orig­i­nal Announce­ment from Decem­ber 27th2021:

Due to the increas­ing rise of the COVID-19 Omi­cron vari­ant, all KYC office loca­tions will close by the end of the busi­ness day on 12/27/21 (includ­ing Psy­choso­cial Reha­bil­i­ta­tion or PSR groups, the Drop-In Cen­ter, and LGBTQ+ Cen­ter). How­ev­er, oper­a­tions and pro­gram areas will work pro­vid­ing care remote­ly from 12/28/21 — 1/9/22 with some ser­vices con­tin­u­ing to be pro­vid­ed in the com­mu­ni­ty. We plan to reopen for on-site busi­ness on 1/10/22.

Clients and those served by KYC will receive addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion by email or phone offer­ing ways to remain con­nect­ed while stay­ing safe at home as we move back to vir­tu­al platforms.

Our best defense for mit­i­gat­ing the spread of COVID-19 are the pro­to­cols that KYC has in place for employ­ees, interns, vol­un­teers, and clients: vac­ci­na­tions includ­ing the boost­er, mask­ing, social dis­tanc­ing, and hand hygiene. 

KYC Lead­er­ship will be review­ing cur­rent pol­i­cy and prac­tice to con­tin­ue to remain cur­rent with CDC recommendations.

We will con­tin­ue to work togeth­er to assure the safe­ty of all employ­ees, clients, and volunteers.

Wish­ing all a hap­py and healthy new year.
