RE: Coronavirus Action Plan

Based on California Department of Public Health Guidance surrounding the prevention of COVID-19 transmission for gatherings, St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center (SMSC) has made the difficult decision to temporarily close programs until April 6, 2020.

Effective Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 3:00 pm through Friday, April 3, 2020, SMSC Adult Day Service Programs will be closed.

This includes all services and activities provided at the following locations:

Supported Employment-Individual Placement services will continue as long as job sites remain open.

During this time we will continue to closely monitor developments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) to see if an extended closure should be recommended.
