The Center CLOSED through MAY 3, due to extended “Stay At Home” Order
The San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) announced the extension of the order requiring all residents to stay at home, leaving only for certain essential activities like getting food/supplies, seeking medical treatment or to provide essential services. Therefore, the Center programs and activities will remain suspended and its offices will close through May 3, 2020.
Please see most recent updates from the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) here; the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) here; and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) here.
It is believed that the implementation of these severe measures will protect the health of vulnerable populations and help delay the rates of transmission of the COVID19 virus and reducing illness and death.
Although we’re physically apart,
we’re a COMMUNITY in spirit!
We know that many individuals consider the Center as a second home so we want you to know that you are not alone during this time. You are a member of the Center family and your health and well-being are our highest priority. We will continue to engage with you via our social media platforms (facebook and instagram), website, email and upcoming quarterly newsletter The Center. Please feel free to reach out to us by emailing, calling (response time may be delayed) or responding to our posts on social media.
As we receive further advisory notices, we will notify all of you as soon as we can.
Please be safe and take care!
