For some charities there will be no alternative but to cease operations at this time. For others, as much as possible, try to allow volunteers and/or employees to work remotely even if you are, for example, an essential service and employees could attend in-person at work. There are various resources and articles online to help you transition to a virtual workplace.

For those who cannot have a virtual workplace, such as food banks, ensure that your volunteers and/or employees have good training, the right protective equipment, as well as generous leave options for those feeling ill.  In the past, in some workplaces, the culture may not have discouraged people who are ill to show up for work and in this current environment that culture needs to change.
