A message from our Executive Director

Christie’s Place is following the news closely to learn more about the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health threat and have decided to adopt policies from the San Diego County Public Health Department and other community partners who serve persons living with and impacted by HIV/AIDS.  In order to protect our clients, their families, our staff, and our stakeholders, Christie’s Place will be implementing the following effective Monday, March 9, 2020, until further notice:

  • All support groups, social groups, educational sessions, empowerment trainings, and family events are cancelled until further notice and will be rescheduled for future dates once the Public Health Department clears such events of social distancing recommendations.
  • Case managers, Retention Specialists, Peer Navigators, Outreach staff and Mental Health Therapists will be providing support and information to our clients and their families via telephone and/or Zoom online meetings.
  • Re-enrollment for coordinated HIV services, medical case management, and retention programs will occur via the telephone and/or Zoom online meetings.  Staff will schedule appointments with clients for a future date to obtain necessary signatures.
  • Christie’s Place staff will be working onsite but our drop-in services, such as bread pickup, produce, and hygiene disbursement are cancelled until further notice and will be rescheduled for future dates once the Public Health Department clears such events of social distancing recommendations. 
  • Staff are practicing recommended prevention habits of washing their hands frequently, avoiding face touching, staying home when sick, restricting nonessential travel, and social distancing.  Christie’s Place has also increased the disinfecting of common areas and surfaces. 
  • All appointments will be conducted over the phone and/or via Zoom online meetings.

 

Our clients are among the most vulnerable to COVID-19, and the staff at Christie’s Place is committed to doing our best to help them maintain good health through this public health crisis.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us.
