Family Resource Center @ MCC: Health and Safety
The Family Resource Center @ MCC will resume offering in-person services (i.e., care management, community wellness workshops, and ReLoved Boutique shopping hours) effective Wednesday, January 19th. Throughout the pandemic, Educational Alliance and Manny Cantor Center have prioritized the health and safety of our community members, staff, and guests. In keeping with this policy, and in following with the advice of medical partners at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, we are updating our health and safety protocols effective immediately.
All adults will be required to share proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to visit the FRC or attend any in-person classes or services. If you will be accompanied by a minor 17 years and under during an appointment, please contact us ahead of your appointment to create a safety plan for your family.
If you are not able to share proof of vaccination, please contact us to set up a virtual appointment.
We strongly encourage all community members and guests to obtain a rapid antigen test within 24 hours before your visit. The FRC will provide at-home antigen testing kits to community members who need them. To obtain a test ahead of your appointment, please email us. Please share proof of your negative result with us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or bring a photo or printout of your result at the time of your visit.
We will also provide testing information and technical support for community members who need help administering a self-test. If you would like to test on-site at MCC ahead of your appointment, please arrive at least 20 minutes ahead of your appointment time to allow for your results to be confirmed.
Free covid tests can be ordered online for your household at https://www.covidtests.gov/, and Manny Cantor Center provides weekly lab-administered testing on Mondays between 7:45 and 9:45am at (address). Please contact us to sign up for a testing slot at our clinic.
