Meals on Wheels of Charlotte County is continuing to monitor reports as they pertain to the COVID-19 (aka Corona virus). We've instituted measures to ensure the safety, of our clients.


We are approaching as follows... 

· Approval of Voluntary Home Isolation: Stay home when you are sick with respiratory disease symptoms. At the present time, these symptoms are more likely due to influenza or other respiratory viruses than to COVID-19-related virus. We are however, proactively, continuously communicating to employees to not come to work if they are feeling sick or have flu-like symptoms.


· We have reminders in place concerning proper hygiene. Respiratory Etiquette: Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw it in the trash can. Hand Hygiene: Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Environmental Health Action: Routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces and objects

· We are in process of gathering documentation from our supplier / vendor community along with having conversations about their food safety practices and associated proactive measures.


We are committed to minimizing any disruption, by putting these measures in place. We will be transparent with our communications as this situation evolves.
