WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: ANYONE ENTERING THE BUILDING MUST WEAR A MASK (we can provide one if you don’t have one), and MUST FOLLOW 6 FOOT SOCIAL DISTANCE GUIDELINES. HAND SANITIZER WILL BE AVAILABLE. OUR RESTROOMS ARE FOR STAFF USE ONLY.
If you are returning or borrowing equipment, we prefer that you call before you plan to come to help us minimize contact and have staff available to assist. We have a temporary shed in the front where returned equipment should be placed for us to disinfect items before we bring them back into the Loan Closet. Return dates were extended so there is no penalty for late returns. We respectfully ask that you consider donating your deposit to FLIC to help us during these financially uncertain times.
The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program has continued to operate during the COVID19 NYS PAUSE because the services provided through these homecare programs are essential services.
If you have questions or other needs that we can help with, you can call FLIC during regular business hours of Monday – Friday 9AM – 5 PM at 607-272-2433. We can answer phonecalls and email prior to our full reopening on 6/29.
Thank you for your patience during this unusual time. We hope that all members of the community are well.
