COVID-19 GUIDELINES TO BE AWARE OF IF ACCEPTED TO OUR PROGRAMS
Montana Conservation Corps is committed to keeping our staff, participants, and communities healthy during this time of spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Extra precautions are being taken, including screening of incoming staff and participants. The following parameters are in place until further notice, and before you begin or return to work you must affirm that they do not apply to you:
International Travel and U.S. Highly Affected Areas
Incoming staff and participants who have traveled to any area of concern based on the CDC’s travel recommendations (level 1, 2 or 3 health notice) or highly affected U.S. areas (101+ cases) must refrain from joining the program until a 14 day quarantine has passed since they were last in that travel location. Because this list has been changing daily, we ask that you notify MCC if you have traveled outside of the US or to highly affected areas in the US in the last fourteen days or plan to between now and your position start date.
CDC International Travel Guidance: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html
CDC US Highly Affected Areas: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-in-us.html
ACTION: If you have traveled or plan to travel outside of the United States recently or to US Highly Affected areas before your start date, please notify your MCC Program Manager.
Contact with Sick People
Incoming staff and participants who have been in known contact with a person who has COVID-19 must refrain from joining the program until 14 days have passed since they were last in close proximity with them.
ACTION: If you have been in contact with a person with COVID-19 you must notify your MCC Program Manager.
All staff and participants should be aware that Montana Conservation Corps is taking significant precaution and implementing mitigation procedures to keep members, staff and communities safe while on program time. Due to the wide-spread nature of the disease, it is important to know that contraction of the illness while in the field or the office is not likely to be covered by workers compensation, and it is up to each individual to ensure their own health and wellness beyond Montana Conservation Corps protocols.
