As CHCF follows the course of the COVID-19 epidemic and the state’s guidance regarding management, it has become clear that response efforts have moved from containment to mitigation.
After considerable deliberation, and in the effort to protect our staff members, our board members, visitors, guests, and the broader community, CHCF is working remotely. This will continue through the end of April, at which time we will revisit our plans. Please see the FAQ below, which outlines our remote work plan.
