Mask Policy- Update 6/3/2021
Note in the Pocket is committed to providing a safe and welcoming place to work and volunteer. We have been intently focused on taking actions to keep our staff and volunteers safe and healthy and our programs open and operating efficiently during the Covid-19 pandemic. We have adhered to guidance from federal, state and local governing organizations to guide our policies. Based on the CDC’s science-based guidance and feedback from volunteers, we are updating our mask policy in a way that balances our commitment to maintaining a safe environment for our valued volunteers and staff.
Beginning on Thursday, June 3 fully vaccinated staff and volunteers (ages 18 and up) are no longer required to wear a face covering while in our buildings. If you are not fully vaccinated we ask that you continue to wear a face covering. This will be on the honor system. Volunteers ages 13-17 will continue to be required to wear a face covering while in our locations in keeping with NC school/camp safety policies.
Those that prefer to continue to wear a mask are welcome and encouraged to do so. We will continue to implement enhanced cleaning practices and physical distancing across both locations.
We appreciate your continued support during the pandemic and please know we could not achieve our mission without you.
