On 3/16/20 much of the greater Bay Area region was given a Shelter in Place Order. Although we're all working toward the common goal to prevent further spread of the disease, there is no doubt that the impact on our communities is large. Additionally, we know that there continues to be a lot of information circling around, so CEN has provided a targeted list of county specific links to help you quickly stay informed and protect yourself, your families, your staff, and those your serve during this difficult time.
