Calming Ourselves & Building Our Power

During any time of crisis, misinformation and rumors can cause fear and unnecessary anxiety. This resource page provides quick links and references to answer many of your questions and calm your concerns. If you think there is an error in our information or have something you feel would be helpful for people with disabilities to know during this pandemic, please send your information to covid@ccdconline.org. We intend these web pages to be of value to you. Help us continue to update and improve on our start.

Any new information will stay highlighted in red for that week. Every Friday morning, we will send out an update to our membership containing the information added the previous week. If you would like to be updated regularly, go to Join CCDC and sign up for a free membership.
