Covid Protocol

As of March 2022

#1 Goal: Keep students in school at 100% capacity and keep NorthStar open at 100% capacity.

#2 Goal: As an organization we believe high vaccination rates are the path to moving beyond this ongoing health issue and will encourage, through organizational actions and words, this for our students, staff, and the community we serve.

PROTOCOLS

1.      Hand sanitizer stations will be in place in the welcome vestibule for all who enter.

2.      Masks are optional in accordance with city mandate. Based on scientific data, we encourage the use of masks as an effective way to reduce the spread of the COVID virus, especially in unvaccinated individuals.

3.      STUDENTS & PARENTS: Masks are optional in accordance with city mandates and regulations in place with Omaha Public Schools. Talk with your student to be clear about your expectations for your student wearing a mask at school and at NorthStar. Consider opportunities to receive a vaccination.

4.      STAFF: Staff must confirm their vaccination status with HR by providing a photocopy of their vaccine card or signing a non-vaccinated form. If vaccination status changes, staff must let HR know. While optional, we encourage the use of masks as an effective way to reduce the spread of the COVID virus, especially in unvaccinated individuals.

5.      VOLUNTEERS & VISITORS: Upon arrival, let the Welcome Center know if you are or are not vaccinated. While optional, we encourage the use of masks as an effective way to reduce the spread of the COVID virus, especially in unvaccinated individuals.

6.      PROGRAM PARTNERS: Program partners contracted to provide services for NorthStar will be asked to confirm their vaccination status with HR. While optional, we encourage the use of masks as an effective way to reduce the spread of the COVID virus, especially in unvaccinated individuals.
