Covid-19 Safety Measures and Precautions

Dear TrueCore Family,
As we all navigate through this challenging time, it is more important than ever to stay current on developments relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. In conjunction with the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, Florida Juvenile Justice Association, and in accordance with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) Guidelines, The World Health Organization (WHO), The Florida Department of Health (FDOH), Executive Orders issued by the Governor’s Office, and The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), TrueCore continues to work diligently to keep the youth and staff in our facilities safe and healthy.
Some examples of the measures that TrueCore is taking to keep our youth and employees safe include social distancing when possible, screening all individuals entering our facilities (employees and contractors), temporarily suspending visitation, temporarily suspending nonessential work inside our facilities, limiting staff movement within the facility, and enhancing our cleaning and disinfecting procedures. TrueCore remains in contact with our local health departments and continues to communicate internally every day to work through this public health emergency.
Whether it be the uncertainly of employment, health, loved ones, or simply one’s overall livelihood, the weeks ahead will be challenging for all of us.

Now more than ever, it is important to come together as a community, even if it is from afar. Please practice social distancing and handwashing as described by the CDC. Let us all also remember to take time for self-care.

Rest assured that the safety and well-being of the youth in our care, their families, and our employees remain our top priority.
Be safe.
Jim Martin
President and CEO
