CLOSED: October 28th – October 31st

October 28th, 2020
We were notified this morning that a volunteer has tested positive for COVID-19. This person was last on site on Saturday. Contact tracing is underway.  If you are contacted by Dorcas staff, please answer all questions to assist in this effort and help control the virus in our community. While we are unable to provide additional information, we will share: there have not been any additional reporting of symptoms from any of our other staff or volunteers. 

In order to take the utmost precaution, Dorcas Ministries will be CLOSED effective today (10/28) at 2 PM through Saturday, October 31st to do a deep clean.  We plan to reopen on Monday, November 2nd.  Volunteers will not be allowed in the building during this time. We will let you know if this changes. 

This will not impact our programs offered by the Client Services office.  Food and financial assistance will continue to be offered through current procedures.  Individuals in need of assistance should contact Client Services at or 919.469.9861, ext. 203. 

As part of our COVID response plan, safety measures like mask wearing, social distancing, frequent hand washing, and sanitizing of high-touch surfaces areas were in place and enforced for staff, volunteers, and customers.  We believe that due to these measures, the exposure risk is very low.  

We are sharing in an effort to be transparent with all of the loyal volunteers, customers, and donors who have continued to support Dorcas Ministries during this important time.  We will continue to follow all CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of our community.  Thank you for your continued support! 
We are praying for all impacted by the pandemic.
