Welcome Andrew KellerMarch 13, 2020
While we continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus, we are taking steps to keep our community and staff safe. As of Monday, March 16th, Great Ecology staff is working remotely during our regular business hours. We’re following the guidance of county and state health departments for additional recommendations regarding social distancing and other ways to help keep one another safe.
During this time, we will be relying on technology to continue to hold regular meetings with our staff as well as with clients and partners, and when fieldwork is necessary, will be maintaining social distancing practices as a way of helping support those members of the community who are most vulnerable.
As a reminder, the best ways to help halt the spread of COVID-19 are currently believed to be:
- Social distancing (at least 6 feet of space is recommended);
- Regularly washing your hands—including the backs, between your fingers, and under your nails--with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (If you’re tired of singing Happy Birthday 2x, you can sing "All-Star" by Smash Mouth, "Jolene" by Dolly Parton, "Big Yellow Tax" by Joni Mitchell, or "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac ;
- Cover your cough or sneeze with the crook of your elbow or a tissue (dispose of it immediately) and washing your hands;
- Disinfecting high-touch surfaces (door knobs, light switches, computers, phones, etc.) in your home at least 1x a day;
- Staying home if you develop a fever, cough, or fatigue—and wearing a mask if you absolutely must go out (Mutual-aid groups are popping up all over the country, ranging from autonomous groups to neighborhood-based organizations to religious groups to support supply runs and other needs for people who can’t or shouldn’t go in public.); and
- Following the directions from your county, or state, health department, who will be closely monitoring the situation where you live.
Stay healthy, and remember, we are here to help you with your project needs.
