Staying Healthy

Coronavirus Response: Keeping our Community Healthy

With the concerns regarding Coronavirus, COVID-19, we want to remind you that there is nothing more important than the health and well-being of our guests, volunteers and staff at Room In The Inn.

We are following the guidance of the Center for Disease Control and Metro Nashville Public Health Department, all of which recommend the following:


Public information hotline: 877-857-2945

Wash your hands for 20 seconds or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue immediately into a closed bin.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact with those who are or think they are becoming sick.

Room In The Inn is a handshake- and hug-free zone.

We will continue to keep you informed and we very much appreciate you keeping yourself and others safe by staying at home if you have any symptoms of any kind for this or any other illness.

At our downtown Campus we are continually reviewing processes and procedures around hygiene and sanitation below is a list of new process we have put in place (we continue to review and adapt as appropriate).

  • Each staff member and volunteer will use their own pens and not share with our guests.
  • Guests will be given golf pencils to use and they will be theirs to hold on to.
  • Alcohol wipes will be available and public keyboards/phones will be wiped down on a regular schedule.
  • We have purchased the Clorox 360 system to treat our facility.
  • Our regular cleaning/sanitizing routine has been reviewed and we have increased frequency as needed.
  • Alcohol based hand sanitizer is available at multiple locations throughout the facility for our guests, volunteers, and staff.
  • Updated signage regarding the importance of steps above posted in all common areas and displayed throughout our facility on TV monitors.
  • All outdoor common areas including trash cans will be power washed and sanitized.
  • We are installing a “no touch” water bottle filler in our Activity Center.
  • All our linens, sheets, pillow cases, and blankets for both our Residential and Winter Shelter Programs are cleaned and sanitized by the same company that the hospitals use. The recent storm has not affected this process or our supply.


If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out. We are thankful for your continued support of and service to our most vulnerable neighbors.
