Starting this week, Denver is transitioning from the stay-at-home order to the safer-at-home phase. Although residents are no longer ordered to stay at home, we are strongly encouraged to do so whenever possible. However, those considered at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 are asked to continue following stay-at-home recommendations, only leaving home for medical care and essential activities. This includes most CCDC staff and volunteers. However, the virus has not stopped CCDC from doing our work and advocacy. In fact, we have been working harder than ever and you can follow our work through our website (www.ccdconline.org), our Facebook Page ccdc.co, and Twitter @ccdc501c3
I encourage you to read more about the new safer-at-home phase and what it means to you at https://covid19.colorado.gov/safer-at-home.
So what does this mean for CCDC? While some non-critical businesses have started reopening with restrictions and reduced staff, here at CCDC our physical buildings remain closed to outside visitors, with a few staff working onsite. Furthermore, we are not attending or hosting in-person meetings during the month of May. We will be reassessing the situation regularly and our highest priority is safety and not inadvertently spreading disease. As soon as we have additional details and/or are ready to take the next steps, we will make sure you know.
In the meantime, please remember that the CCDC staff is still here for you if you need individual advocacy, want to increase your involvement in systems advocacy including virtual community organizing or policy work, or need to contact any of the following directly:
Thank you for your continued support and involvement,
