Jewish Federation of Florida’s Gulf Coast Releases Community Guidance on Re-Opening
[Largo, Florida] (May 12, 2020) -- After two months of various degrees of "lockdowns" of all of our communal facilities, many communities are starting to edge towards reopening.
Across the continent, community leaders are asking: How will we reopen? What can we do to ensure we remain safe?
While no one has all of the answers, we now have guidelines on what can be done now to prepare, thanks to a working group of experts convened by SCN, Secure Community Network. SCN is the homeland security arm of the Jewish people.
“With so much uncertainty, we are relieved to have this guidance,” said Maxine Kaufman, Interim Executive Director at the Jewish Federation of Florida’s Gulf Coast. “SCN is a tremendous resource for the Jewish community.”
The Secure Community Network (SCN) convened a working group comprised of regional and local security directors, national health and security experts, and professionals from several national agency network organizations to develop guidance to help everyone prepare for reopening. They have prepared three guidance documents on the following:
• Guidance for Resuming and Reopening Facilities
• Low-Cost/No-Cost Facility Security Guidance for Use in Reopening
• Emergency Operations Plan Template
SCN is continuing to convene the working group and will work with them to adapt these guidance documents and develop others as the situation evolves. Updates will be release as they become available. For more information, visit: www.securecommunitynetwork.org.
