Warmer weather brings more activity, and that was evident this past Memorial Day weekend. From the Downtown Mall to local wineries, people were stepping out from their homes and quarantine bubbles to enjoy the weather, and things almost seemed “normal” again. With nearly half of adults in Charlottesville and Albemarle fully vaccinated and with the pent-up energy individuals have felt over the course of the pandemic, many are experiencing the summer bug – and so are employers of “nonessential workers”.
As COVID-19 restrictions begin to lift, employers are shifting from “Should the office remain closed?” to “How can we safely reopen the office?”. We at CNE are also grappling with this question and have turned to a few resources to help us think through the process. While we are still keeping an eye on the landscape and following all local, state, and federal guidelines, we are cautiously optimistic about officially reopening the office to staff and the public later in summer. Stay tuned for updates!
In the meantime, we’d like to share some of these resources and guidelines we have leaned on as we strategized and explored how to safely reopen.
CNE also has a library of curated resources on this topic from our friends at Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits who have graciously allowed us to share this reopening resource specific to nonprofits. And as always, do not hesitate to reach out to us at CNE if we can of support.
