Health and Safety Update | New Horizons South Florida

We have made a decision to move all classes to online effective Monday March 16, 2020. 

We will have the New Student Orientation for Consumers on site at the Miami and West Palm Beach Centers only on Monday. This will be a brief in-person orientation for our New Consumer Students to help prepare you for entry into the program and your online classes.  

While we have taken every precaution necessary to limit the spread of coronavirus at our centers, the decision to transition to remote instruction and remote work ensures we provide a healthy and safe environment for our students and team members. We continue to closely monitor the progression of the coronavirus and follow recommendations and guidelines from state and local health departments, the Florida Department of Education, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  

We created this page to be a resource where you can find updated, valuable and reliable information. On this page you will find links to reliable information related to the virus as well as information on protecting yourself.

Precautions New Horizons South Florida Has Taken

New Horizons South Florida has already taken precautions to combat the spread of the flu and other viruses with rigorous cleaning and sanitizing using appropriate disinfecting agents. Additional measures have been put in place to increase the frequency of disinfecting common areas such as tables, chairs, equipment, and doorknobs. Disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer are available throughout our centers for customer use. Team members who are sick or have a fever have been instructed to stay home. Team members and students who develop symptoms will be sent home immediately.

Protecting Ourselves

The World Health Organization has provided guidance on how to protect yourself. Some of the common strategies include:

  • Clean hands with alcohol-based sanitizer or soap and water.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or tissue when coughing and sneezing.
  • Maintain social distance with anyone who may seem unwell.
  • Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.
  • Seek medical care if you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing
