OCALA, Fla. (May 6, 2020) – CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion will begin controlled reopening of its career centers on May 11 to focus on the most immediate needs of those laid off due to COVID-19.

Virtual services will continue to be provided online, by phone and email.

Initially, the centers will be open by appointment only from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays. There will be a limit of five appointments per hour for a maximum of 25 daily. Hours of operation and services will gradually expand as appropriate for the safety of the public and staff.

CareerSource CLM centers are located at:
· 2703 NE 14th St., in Ocala
· 683 S. Adolph Point, in Lecanto
· 2175 NW 11th Dr., in Chiefland

Appointments will be for those seeking help with Job Searches, Welfare Transition and/or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which is commonly known as Food Stamps.

Appointments are limited to 60 minutes and must be made by calling 352-732-1700 or 1-800-434-JOBS (5627) or by Live Chat at careersourceclm.com.

“We understand the urgent need to assist those who have lost their jobs due to COVID-19,” said Rusty Skinner, CEO of CareerSource CLM. “We believe this controlled reopening of our career centers aligns with the roll-out of businesses opening back up in our communities. At the same time, we are extremely mindful of the need to maintain the strictest safety measures to protect our customers and staff.”

Toward that end, Skinner said that all CareerSource CLM staff will wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). All incoming customers will be required to wear face coverings such as medical mask, scarf, bandana or improvised cloth face mask.

Staff will also thoroughly clean and sanitize work areas before and after centers open and between each appointment.

Customers arriving for their scheduled appointment more than 10 minutes late will be asked to wait for the next available opening or be rescheduled.
