How are you? We want to acknowledge that the past weeks have been challenging for all of us. Just as it seemed, we were making progress battling the COVID-19 pandemic, and we find ourselves dealing with new uncertainty and worry as the Delta variant evolves. And now, with the wildfires in California, there is another layer of concern for all of our safety.
Despite these worries, one thing lifting our spirits these days is planning for the return of some in-person on-site services for a small group of participants. We have prioritized bringing back participants who have been unable to benefit much – or at all – from remote services. Many of you may have questions about when YOU or your loved one will be able to return to campus, and we ask for your continued patience as we move slowly and carefully forward.
The sooner we can bring the pandemic under control, the sooner we can all see each other in person. Science has proven that COVID-19 vaccines are the most effective way to end the pandemic, so we encourage you to get vaccinated if you have not already. You can find out more about getting the vaccine here.
And let's keep showing up for each other to support and keep each other safe!
Enjoy our latest update, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Kristen Pedersen, Executive Director
