Clearwater, FL – The Scientology Information Center Manager welcomes guests to a clean and sanitary space, keeping the well-being and health of the community as a top priority.
“Every detail has been thought of. We’ve even placed markers on which chairs to avoid using to allow social distancing at the Center’s board room, open to community use. Another intriguing detail is our night sanitation teams also fog the Center’s HVAC (A/C) systems to ensure nothing has a chance to build up in the air ducts. This is in addition to a cleaning regimen that we’ve taken to a whole new level,” said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center. “The Information Center is also offering masks to visitors who want to learn or for those in the downtown area to anyone who may need one.”
These actions include adding signs in bathrooms with hand washing tips and reminders to scrub for at least 20 seconds; adding a shoe sanitizing mat at the entrance that cleans the soles of shoes as guests step across the threshold.
Floor markings were added to show where 6ft is from the reception desk, and signs remind guests to maintain social distancing have been placed throughout the Center as well. High-touch surfaces, door knobs, sink faucets, etc. with special attention to the Center’s four audio-visual display touch pads, are continually wiped down after every guest use. And finally the Information Center, along with all Church of Scientology spaces, is fogged nightly with one of the highest rated sanitizing substances (Decon7).
Decon7 is a powerful hydrogen-peroxide decontamination substance which has a proven record of neutralizing bacteria and viruses. On a daily basis several teams of the Church’s staff clean and sanitize over 12,000 spaces.
Guests are welcome to come to the Scientology Information Center and its founder L. Ron Hubbard, see short videos on the basic tenets of the Scientology religion, take virtual tours of Churches around the world and learn about the humanitarian programs sponsored by the Church.
To provide additional practical information during these times, the Church of Scientology International has launched a “Stay Well” online prevention site (scientology.org/staywell). These tools have also been shared in booklet form throughout the Tampa Bay area. Skjelset said that the booklets are available for the community at the Center.
The Scientology Information Center hours of operation are Sunday-Friday 10am-7pm and Saturday 1-7pm. For more information about the Center please call 727-467-6966.
