Out of an abundance of caution, Habitat for Humanity Greater Orlando & Osceola County build sites are closed due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak until further notice. The health and safety of our volunteers is our top priority.
When our build sites reopen, we will continue to implement the basic protective measures recommended by the World Health Organization. All our build sites are equipped with hand washing stations, hand sanitizer, sanitation stations for safety glasses and hard hats, and disposable gloves for volunteers to wear under Habitat work gloves, which will be regularly washed.
We apologize for any inconvenience that the cancellation of a group volunteer day may cause. Please contact Events and Volunteer Manager Chelsea Bilger at CBilger@HabitatOrlandoOsceola.org with any questions regarding the build sites.
Monitor HabitatOrlandoOsceola.org or our social media for further updates on the reopening of our build sites.
Please take care! Here are the World Health Organization’s recommendations on basic protective measures members of the public take related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak include:
- Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention. Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider.
- Wash your hands frequently. Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based (60 percent) hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
- Avoid hugs and handshakes. Use alternate ways of greeting people and maintain at least 3 feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth and can make you sick.
- Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
- If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.
- Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
