To the 40 Years of Zen Community,
We are closely monitoring and reviewing the most recent information and science, from the World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control, and the Washington State Government, that is available about the coronavirus (COVID-19). For 40 Years of Zen we are paying attention to how it may impact our employees, clients and communities and making the necessary adjustments to our work and operations to mitigate any concerns or issues that have been identified.
We have one simple objective that guides us: keeping everyone who comes in contact with us safe. This has been at the center of our conversations every step of the way. With that in mind, we have made several moves at our facility to combat potential issues caused by the coronavirus.
In addition to our standard cleaning services, we have intensified our daily commitment to cleanliness and hygiene, including additional steps to ensure the safety of our clients and staff, everything from handwashing hygiene and regular sanitization, to common area cleaning procedures.
Per CDC recommendations, we request employees who have traveled to CDC Level 3 Travel Health Notice locations or have been exposed to others who have traveled to such locations to self-quarantine for 14 days. We will reschedule clients who live in these countries or have visited them within a 3-week period.
Our facility is located in a remote area of Kenmore, WA and clients stay at nearby boutique hotels and Airbnb’s. Because clients are onsite from 9am to 6:30pm with all of their meals prepared, our clients’ risk for exposure is kept at a minimum.
Our program operates in a small group of 3 to 6 clients and a maximum of 6 staff members who are on site. Therefore, your time with us allows you to maintain effective social distancing to keep you and your loved ones safe.
If you don’t feel well or are having difficulties with travel and need to reschedule, we are ready to assist you.
We will continue to closely monitor the situation and do all we can to protect you and our employees.
