As we all closely follow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to thank you for your continued work in support of our shared community. Vitendo4africa is continually taking important steps to protect our clients and the general public from the recent spread of COVID-19.
Here at Vitendo4africa, our number one priority is to continue to provide vital client services in a safe and responsible way, which will ensure our clients, staff, volunteers and community partners will not suffer loss of service, or be placed at risk of exposure.

2. Have been around others who may have had flu like symptoms
3. Have traveled to and from outside Missouri via plane, bus, train or cooperative travel
4. Have been in proximity/near anyone who maybe under investigation/testing of the COVID19.

If you have experienced the above mentioned, please do not come to any events or the V4A office for the safety of our staff, members, and the community at large.

We also request that any clients and community partners who are exhibiting symptoms or have been exposed to the virus also refrain from visiting our offices, and contact their assigned staff member immediately to arrange alternate communication methods. We will also be requiring all visitors to the offices to confirm they do not pose a risk to others.
