Red Cross Sint Maarten

Red Cross is putting some activities temporarily on hold

Due to one of our workers testing positive for COVID, we have temporarily suspended roof repair activities and micro entrepreneurship classes. For most of these activities and for the work sites, chances are very low that COVID was spread. As the Red Cross, we do everything we can to prevent the virus from spreading and want to guarantee the safety of our beneficiaries, volunteers and workers.

Due to the fact that the positive cases was not an administrative position and the COVID measures already in place at the Red Cross, the Red Cross building has not been infected. Some of the roof repair work sites that have not been exposed will continue with the work. The micro entrepreneurship training will resume as soon as it is safe to do so. Other activities have not been exposed.

We do have a policy in place already for a number of weeks to protect volunteers and staff that we ask people to contact us via phone, Facebook, or email instead of coming to the Red Cross office in person.
