At Buffalo Urban League, we always want to ensure the safety of our staff members and members of our community, and this is especially important during the COVID-19 crisis. We have a comprehensive safety plan for our programs to keep everyone safe during this time. 


Cleaning & Sanitizing

  • Daily health & wellness assessments (including temperature checks) for employees and participants.
  • Sanitizing and deep cleaning of work areas, including tables, doorknobs, bathrooms, workstations, and more (occurs several times daily).
  • Signs throughout the building which detail hand washing procedures, social distancing, and proper use of PPE.
  • Six-foot markers throughout the program area.
  • Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes throughout every area.
  • Free PPE supplies for staff members and participants, including disposable masks, hand sanitizer, and gloves.
  • COVID-19 awareness training for all participants. 

Transportation Safety

  • All of our vehicles are cleaned and sanitized before and after each ride.
  • All drivers and participants must wear masks.
  • Participants will get their temperature taken and complete a health and wellness assessment before riding.
  • Social distancing will be maintained.
  • The number of people in the vehicle will be monitored. 

Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will need to quarantine for 14 (fourteen) days in accordance with MCHD and CDC guidelines. A note from a primary care or medical staff must be provided to confirm a safe return to work or program. OPWDD, MCHD, and Care Coordinators will be informed of participants who test positive for COVID-19 while also maintaining HIPAA.


Our services are vital to the Buffalo community, so we’ve worked hard to plan to re-open our programs in a safe manner so we can continue to empower the community and change lives.

If you have any questions about what we’re doing to ensure your safety during this time, or if you want to know more about virtual services, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
