At RMHCK, the health and well-being of our guests, families, volunteers, and staff are our highest priority. As with everyone else, we are monitoring the fast-changing facts and information regarding COVID-19 with great concern. We have been in close contact with our RMHC Global Offices and our partners at Norton Children’s Hospital to ensure a proactive and unified response.
As you know, RMHC of Kentuckiana provides housing for families of ill or injured children in a communal living setting. It is critical to maintain a safe and sanitary environment in order to protect the health of families, employees, volunteers, visitors or others to help flatten the community spread of COVID-19 in Louisville and beyond.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the PROACTIVE decision to suspend ALL volunteer activity and visitors to RMHC of Kentuckiana until further notice. We will also have all non-essential employees work remotely until further notice.
We have temporarily closed our three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms for a minimum of 21 days (effective 3/18).
We have temporarily stopped accepting new family check-ins at Ronald McDonald House for a minimum of 21 days (effective 3/19).
We will continue serving the families who are already staying with us.

our families during this time.
At this point, we do not know how long these changes will remain in effect. We will continue to evaluate the impact of the entire situation on our organization as the health and safety of our families, employees, and volunteers are our top priority.
