Protecting our guests, staff, and volunteers–so we can continue our service to Lancaster County.
We thank God for his provision and protection through this challenging season of the pandemic as we hopefully come to its conclusion. As I mentioned in a previous note, we have not gone untouched by the virus and even experienced a couple of small outbreaks among our guests and staff. But thankfully, we have been able to mitigate the spread by providing quarantine space on campus and work-from-home opportunities, respectively.
As we walk through these final stages of the pandemic and move into COVID being endemic, we are grateful to each of you for your continued support and prayers. It has been a challenging season, but God has done some amazing things despite the circumstances.
As always, we will continue to seek out what is best for the health of our guests and staff, keeping in mind that many individuals with increased risk for serious side effects from COVID walk through our doors for safe shelter daily.
In His Service,
Here’s hoping everyone had a wonderful Christmas season! As we welcome the new year, I realize it has been a while since I have provided an update regarding how Water Street is managing through the ongoing pandemic, so I’d like to take a moment to fill you in.
We continue to thank God for his provision and protection through this challenging season. We have not gone untouched by the virus and even experienced a bit of a small outbreak among our guests in early December. But thankfully, none of our guests or staff suffered significant or lasting physical impacts from the virus. Additionally, we were able to secure sufficient quarantine space both on and off campus to provide safety to those who tested positive and protection from exposure for our other guests.
We continue to keep precautions in place on campus while returning as much of our programming back to normal as possible. We also face the ongoing challenge of keeping staffing levels consistent while managing staff exposures and infections. We are so grateful to our team for their diligence in caring for our guests and one another through this season. And we are grateful to each of you for your continued support and prayers through it all!
