Corona Virus Update: 5/1/2020

What are we doing?

Sunshine Safety Council is aware of the severity of the virus that has been circulating and we are taking every reasonable precaution as dictated by the CDC.

We are currently working from our home offices in an effort to protect our staff and we will not be doing any in person appointments or registrations. We can be reached by phone or email until further notice. Adjustments to schedules are being made, and all classes are will be rescheduled as soon as it is deemed safe.

We have sanitized our offices in preparation for our reopening and we look forward to serving you in the near future! We will post updates as new information becomes available.

What should you do?

  • It is suggested by the CDC that everyone use disinfectant when applicable and frequently wash your hands.
  • Keep your home well-ventilated and avoid touching your face if at all possible.
  • Seek medical attention if you have any symptoms of the virus.
