As our lives continue, we are thankful for life, for the many good things we have in our lives, for the peaceful, non-violent communities we live in and for much-needed societal changes in thought and action that we are seeing.
Here at home, we continue to fight for our civil rights every day. We must always remember that, with rights, come responsibility. As we enjoy our families and communities and are now freely returning to our regular life activities as quarantines and government regulations are slowly lifting, please remember to practice the lessons learned from the Coronavirus pandemic:
Wash your hands frequently. Keep surfaces clean. Consider wearing a facial mask when appropriate. Practice social distancing. Avoid crowds of people when possible. And be responsible, not only for yourselves, but for the others you are around.
I continue working with SKIL staff, trying to figure out the safest way to reopen. As I’ve said before, we work with people with disabilities. We are people with disabilities. So, we feel that we need to be extra-cautious. We appreciate your continued patience in this process!
We plan to start bringing people back to work in the Parsons headquarters office on June 15, 2020. We will continue to slowly reopen from that point on, hoping for the return of you, our beloved customers, in July; however, there will not be full access like it was prior to the pandemic. It will be a very slow process to return to what we know as “normal.” It may be that we will simply have a “new normal.”
We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but again—we have a vital responsibility. As we continue to fight for the civil rights and equality of all people, we have a responsibility to keep people safe. This is done with love, as always.
