Just posted this in the participant forum….

Dear Team,

Today a third update was sent from our beloved Christopher McAuliffe, Founder and CEO of Accomplishment Coaching regarding the current Covid-19 pandemic.

In case you have not received it, I will copy and paste it below my message.

And, I wanted to reach out to you with some additional information.

As you can imagine, the need and integrity of keeping the participants name confidential is paramount.  That being said, since the email mentions a San Diego program, I wanted to assure you that:

*  At this time, there are no known cases of Covid-19 withing the Accomplishment Coaching Community.

  • The participant was tested and has not tested positive, nor have they experienced any symptoms.
  • Their contact with the person who tested positive was minimal.
  • As soon as the participant was made aware that they had been around someone who had tested positive, they informed their AC participant team and the AC leader team of that program.
  • In an abundance of caution, the participant is currently self-quarantined and following all the guidelines of the CDC.

Please know that we are focused on the health, safety and well-being of everyone associated with Accomplishment Coaching.  Please continue to get supported, reach out to each other, reach out to your coaches, reach out….(virtually of course!!!!)

We are committed to continuously updating you in the days and weeks ahead as we navigate this changing situation together.

With tons of love and many virtual hugs,


Accomplishment Coaching COVID-19 Update #3
March 23, 2020
Dear Beloved Accomplishment Coaching Community,

We are committed to communicating with you in the spirit of our vision: The Greatness of Human Beings Unleashed, Power and Possibility for All.

With that in mind, we have the following updates for you.

A.) <u>Office Staff</u> –

All of our office staff in San Diego, California are now working from home. We have daily contact with both office locations, as well as banking, mail and package delivery.  Currently, all Accomplishment Coaching operations are normal, and all national and regional orders and guidelines are being followed.

B.) <u>Coaches’ Training Program Operations</u> –

<u>March, 2020:</u>

  • One of our Coaches’ Training Programs was postponed in March – the New York Intensive Coaches Training Program will meet for their graduation module in a future month.
  • Our second-weekend programs (San Diego, Chicago, and San Diego Intensive) were a hybrid of in-person and online distance training.
  • This last weekend we had our first-ever completely Online Distance Learning Coaches Training Programs.  My gratitude to the leaders of these programs as they worked diligently to provide an excellent experience for all of our participants.
    • Online Distance Learning programs were held for: New York Summer, New York Winter and the very first weekend of our Victoria, BC program.

For <u>APRIL</u><u>, 2020:</u>

  • All Coaches’ Training Programs will meet.  All will meet through Online Distance Learning technology.
  • The start of our scheduled New York Intensive format Coaches Training Program has been postponed.

C.) <u>Covid-19 Exposure</u> –

As of this writing on March 20, 2020, we are aware of only two known possible exposure incidents.

One of the participants in one of our San Diego Coach Training Programs, and a part-time employee in our Pacific Beach, San Diego office have each separately confirmed that they were in contact with someone who has since tested positive for the virus.

Please know that at this time, there are no known cases of Covid-19 withing the Accomplishment Coaching Community.

It is also important to know that:

  • Our participant has not tested positive, nor have they experienced any symptoms.
  • Our employee is home and self quarantined, for at least 14 days or until symptoms appear or they are diagnosed.
  • In both cases, the participant and the employee informed us immediately upon being aware of their exposure.

Please know that our primary focus is on the health, safety, and well-being of everyone associated with Accomplishment Coaching.

Below are the re-iterations of what we’ve said before, but they bear repeating:

<u>Sanitary Precautions</u>

The most effective way to stay healthy and minimize the spread of infectious disease is for every person to follow basic health best practices:

  • Enforcing great hygiene, like washing hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds and covering up coughs/sneezes
  • Avoid touching one’s mouth, nose, eyes or face
  • Ensuring all program leaders, leadership development team members,  staff, and participants stay at home until fully recovered if feeling ill (minimum 24 hours fever-free)
  • Practicing social distancing: consider remaining 6 feet apart from others, avoid shaking hands, and avoid hugging and other close contact when we greet and take leave.

<u>Links to Consult</u>

Helpful links to consult that has been shared in previous communications:

• California Department of Public Health
• Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
• World Health Organization (WHO)
• Worldometers

As stated, we are committed to providing you with clear, timely information. I will provide another update next week, or on any change in our plans or information.

If you would like to discuss our approach or have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact a Program Leader, or me.

In times like this, we are truly grateful for the strength and togetherness of our community.

With love and gratitude,

Christopher McAuliffe, MCC – Founder and CEO
