As many of you know, most statewide mask mandates for COVID-19 have now been removed. This means it is now time for businesses and individuals to set the appropriate level of precaution and safety needed for themselves.
Here at HSDC, our priority is the safety of our staff, clients, and interpreters. We want to make sure that everyone has access to communication and services while also keeping themselves, their loved ones, and each other safe.
We care about the health of our clients, our staff, and the community, so we urge you to take all the precautions necessary to protect yourselves, including thorough handwashing; coughing into a tissue or your elbow; avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; and cleaning frequently touched surfaces.
When in shared spaces in HSDC locations, masks will still be required. When out in the community, HSDC fully supports our staff, clients, and interpreters’ right to continue wearing masks if they choose to do so.
As we respect an individual’s right to keep themselves safe, we ask that all who work with HSDC do the same. If you have any questions please contact ELT@hsdc.org
Hearing, Speech & Deaf Center (HSDC) commits to implementing anti-racist and anti-audist practices based on recommendations from the HSDC Equity Team. We understand the work for Racial & Social Justice is never done and there are always opportunities to do more. It is our responsibility to do all we can to support BIPOC and people who are Deaf, DeafBlind, hard of hearing, and have speech diversity.
We will commence with these commitments immediately and begin with 11 intentional actions, with the help of outside experts from the BIPOC and Deaf communities.
