Beginning Oct. 27, in accordance with a new proclamation signed by Gov. John Bel Edwards, Alliance will no longer require masks in its facilities for students and employees. Alliance will continue to offer students masks if they request them.
Simple safety measures can save lives, and we stand ready to emulate that in our facilities. For us, this includes the following:
- Motion-censored hand sanitizer dispensers throughout our facilities.
- Positioning laptops and computers throughout our facilities to help ensure social distancing whenever possible.
- Displaying best practices and COVID-19 resource links around the clock on the lobby TVs at each of our facilities. All team members – particularly our member-facing employees – have been advised to be extra vigilant with their own hygiene and when cleaning all computers and equipment.
- Additional supplies of antimicrobial soap and towels to ensure we don’t deplete our resources. Antiseptic wipes, boxed pencils and individually wrapped coffee stirrers have been received and are being utilized. Pencils utilized in our classrooms are discarded after every class, rather than reused. A fresh supply of pencils is supplied for each class. We have also added protective coverings to the keyboards located in our training labs.
The Alliance team is continuously monitoring developments and following guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), OSHA and other trusted sources. We will inform our members as circumstances or recommendations change. Rest assured, we’re doing everything in our power to provide a safe experience for our members today and every day.
