Notice of Agency Action Regarding the COVID-19 Virus

The health, safety, and welfare of those individuals and families utilizing services at Ka Hale A Ke Ola Homeless Resource Centers, Inc. is of the utmost importance to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all. The COVID-19 virus has the potential to adversely affect the community and KHAKO is taking this threat very seriously.

At our shelters, we are putting great emphasis on processes and procedures that support the highest standard possible to ensure cleanliness to mitigate the possibility of an infectious disease outbreak.

Some of the most important areas of focus are:

Education: 1) Guests provided an outline of general sanitation practices to employ daily and more frequently as needed, 2) Guidance from the State Department of Health, Centers for Disease Control and other governmental and private healthcare agencies will educate Guests on prevention, signs, symptoms, and healthcare options (when to seek medical assistance).

General Sanitation: 1) increased cleaning of communal areas, 2) readily available and accessible cleaning and sanitation supplies, 3) routine sanitation schedule, 4) proper handling and disposal of waste, and 5) plan for isolation and shelter in place when necessary.

Food Production and Handling: 1) monitoring food handlers for illness, 2) serving and storing food at required temperatures, 3) proper handwashing and food handling, 4) ensure everyone uses proper hygiene sanitation at dining facility entry and exit after completing meals and avoid repeated entry/exit.

Staff Awareness and Education: 1) understanding and working knowledge of KHAKO Infectious Disease Outbreak Policy and Procedures, 2) training and familiarization of general sanitation practices for shelters.

Operationally, the agency will continue to end the cycle of homelessness by bringing unsheltered individuals and families into the facility, when space is available. All shelter services continue to be offered with the extra standards in place to mitigate the spread of any infectious disease, such as COVID-19.

At Ka Hale A Ke Ola Homeless Resource Centers, Inc. we are committed to doing what’s right and best to protect our guests, tenants, staff, and vendors, and to do our part to prevent the transmission of the Corona Virus (COVID-19).
