Just curious if anyone is considering canceling pre-service training that is scheduled in the next month or two? Ours starts in a few weeks, but will have a small class (under 7) so feeling like it will be okay. We already sent out an email to active volunteers regarding the virus and asking them to limit contact with their CASA children and others if they are feeling sick, etc. Luckily, we have no big in-person fundraisers coming up.

Susan, Jackson County has a training scheduled to start on May 5. We are brainstorming alternative plans, such as Zoom or Google Hangouts to do a live webinar from our conference room or PC with everyone logging in simultaneously. We have just started to talk about this. In addition, we have makeup work for every lesson that we could have trainees complete and email to us after they do the reading. These are some different ideas we are discussing but we haven’t landed on anything yet. Wenonoa
Clackamas County has a training scheduled to begin on 4/14. Like others, we are discussing alternatives. No decision has yet been made. However all March events are cancelled except for swearing in 13 new CASAs next Tuesday. We are limiting the class.ceremony to only CASAs, no guests, the judge, her clerk, and one staff person. We will be reaching out to everyone on Monday to make sure they are still willing to attend.
In addition, I have implemented WFH protocols and divided staff into teams. Team 1 works int he office on Monday, Team 2 on Tuesday/Wednesday and Team 3 on Thursday/Friday. That way we don’t cross contaminate each other. We have a 4x daily wipe-down protocol and are keeping our distance from each other.
Lastly, there is a spot on our website https://www.casa-cc.org/covid19 for more information. You can sign up to be on our email list if you’re interested. Today we will be sending an email with guidance about visiting as per National CASAs recent information. And we continue to communicate regularly with partners and volunteers.
Stay safe and healthy!
