An update from the Connect Detroit Leadership team regarding COVID-19:
As concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) have grown, the Connect Detroit leadership team would like to take a moment to update you on the precautionary measures we’re implementing at this time for our programming and workplace.
Above all, Connect Detroit is committed to the health and wellness of our youth, staff, partners and their families. As a result, Ready to SOAR programming has been cancelled effective immediately. Please note that we do not have any public events scheduled for Grow Detroit’s Young Talent at this time, therefore there are no changes to be announced for this program.
Additionally, internal Connect Detroit team members have the option to work remotely. For those preferring to work from our office, we have increased efforts to thoroughly sanitize all public office and private workspaces multiple times throughout the day. Team members also are implementing handwashing best practices and employing social distancing.
We’re adhering to guidelines and directives put forth by The Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, as well as the Governor’s community mitigation strategies and recommendations and encourage the members of our community to do likewise.
Our team will continue to monitor and reevaluate the need for protective measures, making any necessary changes as more information is made available.
Please know we are here and working to support our community. If you would like to reach us, we can be contacted via email at info [at] connectdetroit [dot] org or by phone at 313.967.5898.
