Last night, the official press release went out announcing the Count on Me NC Program. Several local health departments asked previously if there was print information that could be provided to facilities during regular visits and inspections. I have attached two different flyers. One has graphics and would probably be best promoted digitally. The other is designed to print and is in black and white for ease of printing in house.
Also, a couple of updates. We know that the recommendations will continue to change and there will be updates needed. We plan to email any changes out to those who have completed the course and make nightly changes to the course content as needed. We also are adding to the resources available, which should now include the compliance checklist and the symptom screening questionnaire. The front of house and back of house courses are available as of yesterday, so managers can get job specific training for individuals.
Lastly, look for the final two courses to deploy in the next week or so. These will be a general course on cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting, and a generic business course for Phase 2 guidelines. If you have lodging, pools, tattoo artists, or other facilities that are interested in some sort of training or participating in the program, this will be for them. There will be general business guidelines as well as some specific information for some of these different types of businesses.
Thank you for all you are doing. We hope having this content available makes it easier for everyone to prepare to move into Phase 2 when it is announced. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions.
