COVID Precautions: Site – requires masks and a temperature check upon entry. KPETS General -Visiting volunteers must have a signed KPETS volunteer agreement COVID-19 addendum on file with KPETS and follow current CDC, state and local COVID-19 guidelines during each visit. When the weather is warmer we prefer outside visits but when it’s too cold/inclement weather for that, we recommend one room designated as a visit area for attendees to come in one at a time to pet the animal. A professional staff person must be present during the entire visit. Everyone must wear face coverings and wash their hands/use hand sanitizer before and after petting the animals. Social distancing must be followed. If participants or our volunteers are uncomfortable at any time or believe the precautions are not being followed they will end the visit immediately for the safety of all. No one should participate if they are feeling at all unwell. Visits may be cancelled at the last minute due to the fluid status of state and local COVID precautions.
