Many of the members of our Ralph Scott Lifeservices, Inc. family have friends, family, and neighbors that have been impacted by the violence and hate generated toward the Asian community and the Asian American community. We openly denounce the increasing instances of bias, violence, and hate crimes toward Asian and Asian American individuals, in the United States. In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are concerned with the real and devastating implications of hateful anti-Asian rhetoric and violence. We recognize that anti-Asian prejudice is one form of systematic racism that continues to operate in our local community, our state, and in our nation. We must remain vigilant to the many ways that anti-Asian prejudice can affect our staff and the individuals we support. All forms of prejudice, stigmatization, and racism will not be tolerated. RSLI commits to listening to our neighbors and our colleagues in the Asian Community in their efforts to pursue social justice
Ralph Scott Lifeservices, Inc main office on 408 West Trade Street, Burlington, NC is open weekdays from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm. We continue to use Covid precautions and sanitize our office daily. We are open to support our families. However, please remember that we continue to offer and use virtual opportunities. Also, will continue to review our operations and update you on our hours of operation during the pandemic. This will remain in effect until May 31, 2021 and we continue operate our office at 50% capacity in house. We feel this is the best option to keep our staff and the individuals we support safe.
Here at RSL the people we support are our first priority. Safety is everything and during the past year we have worked to keep people safe. Visits are very important to our individuals and their families. This is why it has been a top priority to offer visitation when safe. Effective April 1, 2021 Visitation will open in Ralph Scott Lifeservices, Inc. group homes. We mailed out a letter and guidelines for families to set up their visits. Families may now call and make requests to schedule a visit in accordance with our safety precautions and guidelines. Also, we have worked very hard to offer vaccinations. Vaccines for staff and the individuals we support allow us to lessen visitation restrictions. Additionally, we thank everyone for their patience and we hope to continue small steps to normalcy as Covid-19 numbers decline in the surrounding community.
