The Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House has been approved to re-open and the House will now begin a four-phase program.
This is an intense program where the Ronald McDonald House will have guidelines to follow with each stage. The first phase will open seven rooms at 25 percent capacity. If the first phase passes without any incidents (COVID-19 cases), then it will move into the next stage and open to 50 percent capacity. Without any COVID-19 incidents within the 49 days of phasing, RMH will be able to reopen and start allowing volunteers to return to their duties with some limitations.
“We are grateful for our clinical partner, Children's Hospital at Erlanger, for providing housing for families that were not able to be admitted at the House while it was closed to visitors and new residents,” said President and CEO Jane Kaylor.
“We also appreciate more every day the wonderful contributions that have been made and those who continue to be involved in helping our organization during this tough time. We anxiously await the day when our volunteers and visitors can once again join us at the House.”
