 Protecting Our Community and Staff from COVID-19 West Marin Community Services Statement Wednesday November 18, 2020

To our beloved community and beyond,

One of our staff members tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday November 16, 2020. Out of an abundance of caution, we have closed our Food Pantry, Thrift Store, and Resources Office until further notice.

We will be working at a very limited capacity when it comes to our administrative duties such as offering whatever remote assistance is possible and staying current with our communication portals. Our neighboring food pantries Tomales Town Hall, Bolinas Community Center, and San Geronimo Valley Community Center have been notified of our closure and are preparing what they can in their own capacities.

Our best mode of contact at this time is our email info@westmarincommunityservices.org. We will be periodically checking voicemails on our office line (415) 663-8361 and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Please also visit our website westmarincommunityservices.org for up-to-date information regarding our opening status, alternative food pantries, and other resources for the community.

We want to thank our community for bearing with us in this trying time and urge everyone to enjoy this holiday season responsibly.

Protegiendo Nuestra Comunidad y el Personal de COVID-19 Comunicado de West Marin Community Services Jueves 19 de Noviembre de 2020

Para nuestra querida comunidad,

Un miembro de nuestro personal dio positivo a la prueba de COVID-19 el lunes, noviembre 16, 2020. Hemos decidido tomar las precauciones necesarias y cerrar el dispensario de comida, la tienda de segunda, y nuestras oficinas hasta un próximo aviso.

Nosotros estaremos trabajando limitadamente en las oficinas administrativas ofreciendo asistencia remotamente como sea posible. También estaremos manteniendo el portal de comunicaciones al corriente. Se les ha notificado Los dispensarios de comida de nuestros vecinos en Tomales Town Hall, Bolinas Community Center, and San Geronimo Valley Community Center de nuestro cierre y ellos se están preparando para servir a nuestra comunidad como lo permita su capacidad.

La mejor manera de comunicarse con nosotros en este tiempo es por correo electrónico a info@westmarincommunityservices.org. Nosotros estaremos revisando los mensajes de voz en la oficina periódicamente (415) 663-8361 y le regresaremos la llamada lo más pronto posible. Por favor visite nuestro sitio de internet westmarincommunityservices.org para información sobre el estado de reapertura, dispensarios de comida alternativos y otros recursos para la comunidad.

Le agradecemos a nuestra comunidad por estar con nosotros durante estos tiempos difíciles, y le pedimos a todos que disfruten las fiestas venideras responsablemente.
