Keeping Everyone In Our Family Safe

As we welcome both our team and clients back to Sherpa, our number one priority is keeping everyone safe. We want to detail our policies and protocols while setting expectations for your return. Our plan is based on Connecticut state guidelines, as well as feedback from both staff and clients. We used this input to finalize these specifics intended to protect us all. As always, the focus of our team is keeping clients healthy, and we appreciate the opportunity to continue the work we love moving forward.

Plan Part 1

Each staff will be armed with CDC recommended disinfectant in a spray bottle to clean up each touched piece of equipment

After every class or training session each staff member will retrace the areas in which their session took place to clean prior to starting their next session

Plan Part 2

Sector Cleaning
Each staff member is assigned a sector in the facility to clean at the end of each morning and afternoon shifts. This will prevent omitting areas in the facility that need attention.


Weekly Cleaning
A professional cleaning crew will detail and clean the facility every Wednesday and Saturday
