Since she began volunteering with Frisco Family Services in May, Emily Dzurisin said she has been touched by how thankful clients have been when visiting the food pantry. As someone who is in “good shape,” Dzurisin said she decided to start volunteer- ing because it was not the time to “step back” from helping those in need. She specically recalled a rst-time shopper who visited the food pantry earlier this year. After sta members walked him through how to ll his shop- ping list without going over the weight limit, Dzurisin said, he pledged to return to the food pantry once he came o of furlough at his job so he could volunteer and “pay it forward.” CONTINUED ON 30 Frisco nonprots step up as food insecurity increases BY WILLIAM C.

FROMVICKI: Like so many of you in your jobs and at home, we have all been wearing extra hats here at Community Impact Newspaper . I tip my hat to everyone taking on new roles, especially our educators and parents who are working so hard to make virtual and in-person school a safe and positive experience. Our community’s fl exibility, resilience and willingness to help each other out during challenging times are inspiring to me. Like many local businesses, Community Impact Newspaper has felt the fi nancial impacts of the pandemic. In recent weeks we restructured our company in order to preserve and strengthen our ability to continue reporting hyperlocal news and helping local businesses thrive. As part of this restructure, we are thrilled to add one of our veteran editors to the Frisco team. Please join me in welcoming Miranda Jaimes.

“They have committed that as long as the demand is there, the site will remain operational,” said Owen, who represents the city of Frisco at the testing site. “We’ll revisit [that in] the fi rst week of September—we’ll have another conversation about what the [testing] numbers are looking like, what the trends in the region are doing and the trends in the state.” The site has the capacity

to perform as many as 1,000 tests per day but was averaging around 350 per day in August, he said. “We’re very happy to have this commitment at least through Sept. 12 because Frisco ISD ...

BY WILLIAM C. WADSACK

Hurricane Laura hit the Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana as a Category 4 stormAug. 27, sending many residents in its path fl eeing north. The Frisco Fire Department worked with Visit Frisco to secure blocks of rooms at a number of hotels in the city for those seeking shelter.

Visit Frisco Executive Director Marla Roe said Aug. 28 that more than 700 of the city’s hotel rooms were full and that some sta ff members were back from furlough to help. The hotel rooms were paid for by the state to house qualifying evacuees, Roe said.

About 2,800 Hurricane Laura evacuees were set up in Frisco hotel rooms starting Aug. 26 thanks to the work of the city’s emergency management team. The state worked with local emer- gency management divisions to set up hotel rooms for evacuees.

Aug. 18 Frisco City Council meeting. “Hopefully, it’ll give travelers some comfort that we’ve gone over and above against COVID[-19] and other things.” In 2018, an estimated 6.6 million visitors spent $2.1 billion in the city, according to Visit Frisco. Of that, more than $930 million was spent on retail at venues, such as Stonebriar Centre. A quarter of that visitor spending went to food and beverage purchases, and just under 10% was spent on recreation and entertain- ment. Visitors also spent more than $220 million on lodging in the city. Among the local attractions pursuing the accreditation are Ford Center at The Star, Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center, Hyatt Regency Frisco, the Frisco Discovery Center, Omni Frisco Hotel, Toyota Stadium and the National Soccer Hall of Fame.

Many of Frisco’s hotels and tourist destinations are pursuing an accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council to help travelers feel safe about returning to the city during the coronavirus pandemic. The GBAC STAR Accreditation Program helps organizations o ff er training and set protocols for biorisk situations. Achieving the accred- itation ensures facilities use best practices to limit future outbreaks and gives cleaning sta ff the ability to do their jobs safely and e ff ectively, according to the GBAC. Visit Frisco Executive Director Marla Roe said all of Frisco’s sports facilities and attractions are in the process of pursuing the accredita- tion, as are most city hotels. “It’s a 20-step process that allows us to have one uni fi ed message for marketing,” Roe said during the

The Ford Center at The Star and the Omni Frisco Hotel are among the local facilities pursuing the GBAC STAR Accreditation. (WilliamC. Wadsack/Community Impact Newspaper)

ACCREDITATION PROCESS The GBAC STAR accreditation process requires facilities to comply with criteria set out on these 20 elements: • Organizational roles, responsibilities, and authorities; • Facility commitment statement; • Sustainability and continuous improvement; • Conformity and compliance; • Goals, objectives and targets; • Program controls and monitoring; • Risk assessment and risk mitigation strategies;

• Standard operating procedures; • Tools and equipment; • Cleaning and disinfection chemicals; • Inventory control and management; • Personal protective equipment; • Waste management; • Personnel training and competency; • Emergency preparedness and response; • Facility infection disease prevention practices; • Worker health program; • Audits and inspections; • Control of suppliers; and • Documentation management.
