Semcac COVID Preparedness Plan
Semcac is taking all of Governor Walz’s directives seriously and we are staying informed about the updates and guidance provided by the CDC and MN Dept of Health, about COVID-19. Semcac monitors the situation regularly and is also receiving recommendations from various funding sources. Please be patient, kind and forgiving as we do our best to navigate this situation.
Internal changes as recommended by CDC for enhanced cleaning schedules and procedures, working from home for staff if possible, monitoring symptoms, less in-person meetings and more electronic communications, physical distancing, and encouraging employees to stay home if feeling ill, is all being practiced.
