Like many of you, we are closely following the news regarding COVID-19. We understand that this is a stressful time and that there is a lot of information to digest.
In the many cases, the symptoms of COVID-19 are mild. However, older adults and people with chronic medical conditions are at higher risk for more serious COVID-19 illness.
The LGBT Elder Initiative is currently operating virtually. We are following the advice of public health officials and being abundantly cautious to ensure that we are not putting any member of our community at risk. We are still holding programs as webinars and Zoom meetings. Our staff will be working remotely during this time.
We will continue to closely monitor any developments related to COVID-19 in Pennsylvania and will take the necessary precautions to keep people safe.
