Pacific Conservation Districts Precautions Statement
PCD will be closed to the public until April 30th, 2020.
Pacific Conservation District is taking extra precautions regarding the spread of COVID-19. Steps we are currently taking to minimize both employee and community exposure are listed below:
-Board Supervisors, employees, volunteers and community members are asked to stay home if they experience any cold or flu symptoms.
-Additional and more frequent sanitization of common spaces and touch-points.
-Staff are washing hands frequently and sanitizing their personal work spaces regularly.
-We have 60%+ alcohol-based hand sanitizer throughout the office and in all PCD vehicles.
-With a small staff size, varying schedules and individual offices for employees, we are able to adhere to social distancing guidelines regularly. Meetings are held in small groups according to social distancing guidelines in open spaces or using an online meeting platform.
-All public events (workshops, community meetings, work parties, etc.) have been cancelled or postponed through April 30th, 2020.
Beginning March 18th, 2020, PCD will be taking the following additional precautions:
-Community members are asked to call prior to coming into the office so we can ensure that they are served most efficiently (360) 875-6735.
-Staff will communicate with community members before scheduled site visits to confirm comfortability and ensure proper social distancing guidelines can be followed. Site visits may be rescheduled based on cooperator or employee health concerns.
-Community members with concerns about dropping off a soil sample or picking up equipment, please contact us directly to reschedule and talk about alternatives (360) 875-6735. Community members who are experiencing cold or flu symptoms are asked to please reschedule dropping off soil samples and picking up rental equipment.
-PCD Board of Supervisors will assess upcoming Board meeting logistics.
Circumstances are rapidly changing, and the above precautions and guidance are subject to change at any time. Pacific Conservation District is committed to the health and safety of everyone at PCD and in our community and will be following local and state health department guidance.
