Local Covid-19 Information
Please be aware that our meetings are being held via Zoom until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Below is information we hope will help you during these challenging times. If you need additional help or information, please call 211 for assistance or referrals. And as always, contact your elected officials for assistance.
For the most accurate information about Covid-19 symptoms, treatments, vaccines, and travel restrictions, we recommend visiting the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website. It is important to only trust health information from online sources that you know are trustworthy and reliable, such as the CDC website.

There is a state moratorium on housing evictions that the governor has extended until June 30, 2021. However, this does not necessarily apply to all tenants and all properties, so it is important to make sure that you understand how this law applies to your situation.

Unemployment may be one of the most frustrating issues that people are dealing with during the Covid-19 pandemic. If you have become unemployed due to Covid-19, you’ve no doubt called EDD and visited their website. But you may not be able to reach them or to get your questions answered. This ABC news report by KGO offers several useful tips. In addition, if you need legal help and cannot afford an attorney, visit the California Rural Legal Assistance website or call them at: 1-800-337-0690
But the best suggestion we can offer to those struggling with EDD problems is to contact your elected state officials. Their job is to represent you, and they have staff you can contact for help. That said, some elected officials are more helpful than others, so keep trying.
