Grays Harbor Conservation District Precautions Statement

Grays Harbor Conservation District is taking extra precautions regarding the spread of COVID-19. Steps we are currently taking to minimize both employee and community exposure are listed below:

-Board Supervisors, employees, volunteers and community members are asked to stay home if they experience any cold or flu symptoms.
-Additional and more frequent sanitization of common spaces and touch-points.
-Staff are washing hands frequently and sanitizing their personal work spaces regularly.
-We have 60%+ alcohol-based hand sanitizer throughout the office.
-With a small staff size, varying schedules and individual offices for employees, we are able to adhere to social distancing guidelines regularly. Meetings are held in small groups according to social distancing guidelines in open spaces, or using an online meeting platform.
-All public events (workshops, community meetings, work parties, etc.) have been cancelled or postponed through April 30th, 2020.

Beginning March 17th, 2020, GHCD will be taking the following additional precautions:

-Community members are asked to call prior to coming into the office so we can ensure that they are served most efficiently (360)249-8532.
-Staff will communicate with community members before scheduled site visits to confirm comfortability and ensure proper social distancing guidelines can be followed. Site visits may be rescheduled based on cooperator or employee health concerns.

-GHCD Board of Supervisors will assess upcoming Board meeting logistics. To attend upcoming (10am March 20 and April 17) Board of Supervisor meetings through teleconference, please use the following information:
