COVID-19 Protocols for Safety at RIVA
As things slowly begin to move into the new normal, RIVA wants you to know that we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety and well-being of our students and visitors to our offices. When you visit RIVA, here are steps we have implemented in order to help keep you safe and healthy in our offices. We have done the following:
Included additional hand sanitizer bottles in all common areas that RIVA visitors use.
Increased sanitizing and cleaning during the course – wiping down all common areas, tables, chairs, and appliances with disinfectant wipes.
Provided RIVA students with their own bag of sanitized pens, markers, and highlighters to use in the course.
Replaced our dishes with disposable cups, utensils, and plates to be discarded after use.
Provided masks and gloves for staff, students, and guests upon entry to RIVA if you don’t have one. If you already have one, please bring it with you.
Moved to a plan that all snacks will be packaged [chips, cookies, trail mix, breakfast bars, etc.] and, if lunches are offered, they will be individually prepared orders from local restaurants.
Limited the number of staff in the offices during class sessions.
Set up our training room to best comply with social distancing efforts, maintaining 6ft distance mandates.
Implemented a “Temperature Check” on all persons that enter the office each day so that everyone is safe.
Asked students to complete questionnaire prior to the course related to COVID-19.
Implemented a policy in which staff will be unable to touch any student’s computer. We will be able to assist/walk through any issues students are experiencing, but cannot do it for you.
Our office building has also increased efforts to ensure that common “touch points” in the building are sanitized at frequent intervals. They have posted informational flyers on how to best follow social distancing guidelines, including limiting elevator capacity. Like RIVA, the building is following the CDC guidelines in order to keep tenants and visitors safe and healthy.
RIVA has continued to follow direction from Maryland’s Governor Hogan, the State of Maryland, and the CDC in order to be best prepared to welcome you back to our office. As the situation continues to evolve, RIVA will respond accordingly.
