A Message From Els for Autism Regarding COVID-19
We hope you are all doing well amidst this challenging time in our world. The coronavirus (COVID-19) is on the top of everyone’s minds right now and we wanted to take a moment to share how Els for Autism is responding to the situation.
Our top priority remains the health and safety of our staff, clients, and visitors. In an effort to “flatten the curve” and practice social distancing, The Els Center of Excellence campus will be closed through March 27th . During this closure, Els for Autism staff will be working from home, helping to ensure there are minimal disruptions to the delivery of our mission.
We understand that this time of uncertainty can be difficult, especially to those on the spectrum, and we are grateful to our staff who are working diligently to provide remote services to our clients and families to keep routines and interventions as typical as possible.
We are working through our schedule of fundraising activities and rescheduling events as appropriate. If you have registered for an upcoming event, please look out for a separate announcement with information on rescheduling.
Despite these changes, we remain dedicated to our mission of helping people with autism fulfill their potential to lead positive, productive and rewarding lives. During these next two weeks, we will continue monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) and adapt accordingly, reaching out and relaying status updates to keep you informed.
Thank you for your support and understanding. We are in this together and we wish you peace and good health during this difficult time.
