RPBCWD Response to Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

Office Closed to Visitors

 

Covid-19 District Action Plan

The District office remains closed to all visitors, and staff are working from home when possible. If you see us out in the field, please maintain healthy physical distancing. We will continue to host board meetings and all other events online. If you need to reach a staff person, feel free to give us a call or send an email. Contact info can be found on our website: rpbcwd.org/about-watershed

Though it may seem like the world around us has come to a halt due to the Covid-19 pandemic, District staff are busier than ever adapting our projects and programs to fit our new reality. Here are some of the new safety measures in place to keep our staff and residents safe and healthy: 

  • The District office remains closed to the public. If you need to reach a staff person, feel free to give us a call or send an email. 

  • A new, secure mailbox has been installed in the vestibule of our office. This can be used to drop off permit applications or other agreements. The front door to the vestibule will open during work hours on weekdays. 

  • Staff will not be conducting any face-to-face meetings for the foreseeable future. Like many of you, all we have transferred all meetings to an online video conferencing platform. This includes all meetings of the Board of Managers and Citizen Advisory Committee. Links to all public meetings can be found on our events calendar. 

  • You may see us out in the field monitoring our resources. Please keep your distance.  

  • All in-person public events have been moved online for the foreseeable future. Our Education and Outreach Staff are working hard to continue to bring you quality webinars, educational videos, resources for teachers, fun activities for kids and much more! 

  • Staff have created new zero contact site visit protocols for conducting site visits as a part of our Watershed Stewardship Grant Program to adhere with District safety guidelines. We will begin working through our list of almost 40 requests as quickly as possible.  

The health and safety of all staff, contractors, volunteers, and residents is of the utmost importance to the District. We will continue to adapt as the situation progresses to best meet the needs of the moment.
