What should we prepare for when "customers" come into our facility? Temperature check for everyone?

Our office has used Marco Polo for daily check in's. Keeps it light and engaging, and fun too!
"Comfy clothes"...do we go back to former dress code or relax that now that we all have gotten used to wearing comfy clothes?
I love what Melissa just said about choosing advisors carefully. I can relate to having reactive advisors as COVID was entering Middle Tennessee.
We are working from home about 75% of the time and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
We are going to begin the planning by June 1 to re-enter IN June. We never fully shut down on the direct service side. We have staggered admin folks in the office so that there were never more than half in the office at any time. We have been able to keep staff and clients COVID free, and that remains the goal. As long as the work is getting done and clients are getting served, we will go slowly and intentionally at End Slavery TN.
For TPCA, we are allowing staff that really want to go back into the office to start working in office on June 1. So far it is a handful. The rest will be working from home until July or August and reassessing after that. We are allowing those who are high risk or need to care for children to remain at home through the summer. We are working well from home in a large part because of technology.
Does anyone have a COVID-!9 return to work policy template for the employee handbook?
also, does anyone already have a COVID-19 guidelines for work in the office etc.

In Kanas City, the Kansas City Civic Council, the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, and the KC Area (Economic) Development Council collaborated to create a back-to-work guide for businesses. Perhaps it will be helpful for nonprofits, too. https://www.kcciviccouncil.org/media/1146/final-safereturn-guide.pdf
We are looking at going back in June using a hybrid model which allows our parents of students to choose to send their children into our space or keep their children at home and receive virtual services. We will require all students to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer. All participants will also be 6 feet apart. We are still trying to decide on masks because our services are primarily movement based and we are not sure if it’s safe.
We will be working from home until children go back to school. Most of our team have young children and they need to be home to care for them. We will reassess once the school districts make a call on their 20/21 academic years. We are also going to consider our role in protecting the community and lowering the spread rate and trying to do our part by working from home when possible.
We have agreements for both clients and employees to sign
Our goal is to try to return to combined remote and in-person programming by July, but date is flexible depending on the situation.
Pandemic policies can be added to disaster preparedness plans
Great resource, thank you Whitney.
