CDC recommends that people wear masks in public settings, like on public and mass transportation, at events and gatherings, and anywhere they will be around other people.
At Boca Helping Hands, we require all staff, volunteers, and clients to wear masks and abide by social distancing guidelines in compliance with the recommendations set forth by the CDC. Additionally, we have enhanced our cleaning protocols and undergo regular temperature checks.
