- Increase the frequency of cleanings that take place throughout the day, especially in high-traffic areas. Additionally, the EDCJCC will close once a month for a deep cleaning of the entire facility, and increased circulation of fresh air will be maintained throughout the building using our new HVAC and Direct Outdoor Air Supply Unit.
- Continue to educate all staff on policies and guidelines so they can provide the safest and most enjoyable experience for all visitors.
