Coronavirus _ KS CFs :

Following the footsteps of KACF's peer PSOs, may we recommend the following to Kansas CFs :

- Review your sick leave and remote working policies to make sure employees understand their options. Encourage employees to stay home if they aren’t feeling well or if they are in a high risk demographic. If your organization works with volunteers, make sure they are also up to date with precautions and know to stay home if they are sick.

- Review your emergency plan, if you have one. If you don’t have a plan yet, take some time to think through what changes your organization would need to make if your community were impacted by an outbreak. The CDC outlines emergency planning here. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/organizations/guidance-community-faith-organizations.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fcoronavirus%2F2019-ncov%2Fcommunity%2Fguidance-community-faith-organizations.html


- Check in with your grantees and try to be flexible. As the situation evolves, non-profits may experience challenges related to event planning, volunteer management, or other areas of operations, so their plans will change.

- During school closures, CFs and partners need to mobilize the community in order to ensure that students are able to access food and other resources usually provided by schools.
