Fort Caswell's COVID-19 Response
Fort Caswell cares about our guests, our staff, and our community. Since the initial outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken measures to reopen to visitors in accordance with state government and CDC guidelines. Because we care, we wish to remind you to take precautions to keep yourself and others safe and healthy. You can learn more about (COVID-19) from the CDC by clicking here.
Now, perhaps more than ever, we know that many North Carolina churches, families, and educational institutions are feeling the full weight of lockdown burden. For those groups that are ready to venture out, Fort Caswell is fully prepared to offer this quiet and secluded natural environment as a place of retreat and reflection (please read about our extended safety measures below).
We will continue to actively monitor developments and remain in contact with local/state government agencies, including the NC Division of Public Health and Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Extended Safety Measures—What We Are Doing:
As always, the health and safety of our guests and staff remain a priority. In consideration of the ongoing flu season, and in light of COVID-19, our Facilities and Maintenance staff are taking extended measures with regard to sanitizing high-traffic and high-touch areas in addition to daily routine cleaning and sanitizing measures already in place. You will find hand sanitizing dispensers located throughout our campus and especially in high-traffic areas. We are actively reinforcing the preventative measures outlined by the CDC and ensuring that all hand washing stations/restrooms are restocked more frequently.
What you can do:
- Clean your hands frequently and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, especially after you have been in public places
- If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
- Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your sleeve or arm, not into your hands
- Avoid close contact with others that are sick
- For the safety and well-being of others, if you are sick please stay home and take care of yourself
Please join us as we pray for those affected by this illness, their caregivers, and those working diligently to minimize the health and economic impact of this virus.
