On March 17, 2020, a “Shelter-In-Place of Residence” order was issued for all Bay Area counties. To protect you and your families, our staff, our partners, our volunteers, and the communities we live and work in from the risks associated with COVID-19, UC ANR Cooperative Extension has implemented a work from home policy for our staff. This policy will remain in effect from March 17, 2020 through May 31, 2020.
Finally, we want to encourage you to follow the guidance(s) associated with the “Shelter-In-Place of Residence” order, as well as information posted on the various county and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) websites. Thank you for your continued and ongoing support.
