SPFB PROTOCOL COVID-19

With rising concerns over the spread of COVID-19 nationwide, The South Plains Food Bank is taking steps to ensure the well-being of our staff, volunteers and those we serve. As part of this, the FRONT LOBBY WILL ONLY ALLOW UP TO 5 PEOPLE AT A TIME. We will be implementing additional protocols that go into effect Wednesday, March 18, and remain in place until April 15th at the earliest.

The new protocols for the SPFB are as follows:

  • The overall capacity of the building has been reduced
  • Anyone entering the building experiencing ANY symptoms of illness (cough, congestion, fever, etc.) are to remain home
  • Staff will ask any person exhibiting signs of illness to go home
  • All persons who have or are close to someone who has visited a country on the CDC watch list (wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel) must stay home
  • People that are part of an at-risk population (older adults and those with serious chronic medical conditions) or anyone with regular contact with a person who is a higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19 should remain home
  • Volunteers must be at least 18 years or older
  • Upon your arrival in our building, please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer
  • Please note that we will be limiting social distance, including handshaking, as a means of decreasing the possibility of transmission
  • A food voucher only guarantees a dry box and frozen box. We will do our best to supply extras as we get them.
