PRECAUTIONS FOR CASAS, STAFF, AND COMMUNITY
To our CASA community,
In an effort to reduce exposure to and the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), CASA for Children is taking precautionary measures and adapting advocacy efforts to ensure health and safety.
We will continually assess the situation and keep you informed. We appreciate all of our volunteers! We want all of you, and our staff, to stay healthy. Please take the steps you think are necessary to take care of yourself. Our supervisors are here to support you and we encourage you to reach out to them with any questions or concerns.
The State of Oregon is currently under a 4-week freeze.
Do not visit children in person for the four week freeze. Even if you have visited with a mask and social distancing. If you feel a need to have an in person visit with your child, you must have supervisor approval.
Review hearings in Multnomah County only are cancelled until the freeze ends. For now, that date is December 16th.
ADVOCATES, DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT SERVING DURING THE PANDEMIC?
STAY HEALTHY AND SAFE
WE WILL SEE YOU SOON!
