Dear Volunteers and Clients,
In light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, the Shepherd’s Center of Great Falls (SCGF) wants to reassure you that we are carefully monitoring the situation. We will let you know if our services must be further changed in order to keep us all healthy.
For now, we will continue providing transportation service to our clients. We will suspend the Friendly Visitor Program until further notice, but will offer Friendly Calls as an alternative. If you do not feel comfortable either providing rides or requesting rides, you may temporarily discontinue driving or riding.
In order to minimize the spreading of COVID-19 in our community, please follow these recommendations:
Please call the SCGF office at 703.586.9696 if you have any questions about these guidelines. If you are sick, please contact your physician who will determine if you need a test or medical attention. Detailed information can be found online from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control at
or from the Fairfax County Health Dept at
We will keep you updated about when we can return to normal operations. Thank you for your support of SCGF and stay safe.
Shepherd’s Center Board of Directors
