Effective June 15, 2020
WRAP is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for our employee, volunteers, build teams, Board, and clients during this time of threat of the Coronavirus. The health and safety of our clients, partners and volunteers are of the utmost concern. WRAP will regularly refer to the CDC’s website for information and updates on COVID-19.

DO NOT take part if you are uncomfortable with the level of risk.
The reason for masking is to prevent YOU from passing on anything you are carrying to someone else.
Board members will not have face-to-face meetings as the Board consists of 13 (meeting) members. With the new Proclamation, if we can have 13 people in a room and maintain 6’ distance between everyone, we can meet face to face. The Board prefers to meet by Zoom.
