In response to the COVID -19 emergency, the California Health Collaborative (CHC) and its Board of Directors have established a home-based remote work environment for all of our staff. This took effect Wednesday March 18th, in response to a local Fresno City Ordinance scheduled to take effect at 12 midnight we closed our office in Fresno. All of our CHC staff are currently working from a home office environment and are maintaining communication with state and local public health authorities to ensure our compliance with prevention and containment efforts.

Although the COVID-19 emergency has challenged all non-profits throughout California and has required CHC to adjust our in-person and community events schedule, we continue to work on our service commitment with our partner agencies and the State of California via the Zoom platform.

The CHC recommends that all California residents seek and follow instructions from trusted sources of medical and scientific information. These sources include:

It is critical that you be informed and make your decisions based upon current factual information provided by these entities. These organization at the federal, state, and local level are the primary groups responsible for providing resources, services and guidance in addressing COVID-19. CHC will monitor this continually to ensure we are also fully compliant with Gov Newsom orders for all of California.

As a member of the statewide network of Non-profits serving all Californians, CHC urges you to stay healthy, stay informed and not afraid.
