Tarc Covid-19 Policy 2020

The Arc of Tippecanoe County is pleased to announce we will be going to a limited in person event schedule for September. We will host Aktion Club and a Spaghetti Dinner this month. These dates are on the calendar on this website- right hand corner.

I am also attaching the new Arc of Tippecanoe County Covid-19 policies we are rolling out to keep everyone safe as we can.  The Board of Directors and myself, have been researching, attending trainings and talking with other groups on how to get back to in person events safely. Please read the entire policy before you attend the Spaghetti Dinner or Aktion Club this month. Everyone will need to sign a copy at your first event.

 

Covid-19 Health and Safety Guidelines

Policy:

The Arc of Tippecanoe County takes the health and safety of our members, Volunteers and employees very seriously.  Due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic, we have developed new health and safety guidelines which follow state and local health department guidelines to reduce the spread of Covid-19 at our events.

General Procedures:

  1.  Every person who attends an event MUST wear a mask that they are responsible for providing.  The Arc will NOT be providing masks for anyone.
  2. Every person must have their temperature taken before they are allowed into the event.  We will have a contactless, forehead thermometer that will be used to take temperatures. If you have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, you will not be allowed into the event.
  3. Every person must answer the Covid-19 screening questions and sign the paper after answering them.

I am thrilled to tell you that Best Buddies will be back despite Covid-10 for the school year 2020-2021!! The program will look very different. It will be all virtual to start- calls, emails and online meetings with your Purdue Buddy. We will move forward with other types of meetings depending on how things go with the state and local Covid-19 restrictions. I will be releasing The Arc of Tippecanoe County’s Covid-19 restrictions for fall programming next week.

I wanted to get things started with our online registrations. You can go to www.bestbuddiesonline.org and use your username/email from last year to register for this school year. Make sure you update your emergency contact and own contact information. If you forgot your information to log on, just email me and I will fix you up.

I am also very happy to tell you we have a new Tippy Arc Best Buddy Coordinator for this year, Katie Ceglio. Katie joined our Tippy Arc Board this year and is a past officer of the Purdue Chapter of Best Buddies. Welcome Katie!!
