As an organization providing essential services in these uncertain and constantly changing times, we remain dedicated to supporting the well-being of one of our community’s most vulnerable populations. Though we’ve had to make a number of significant changes to comply with important safety procedures, we have been working creatively and collaboratively to consistently support individuals at Cedars and ensure their health and safety.

Cedars has taken the following action

  • Cedars is strictly following the guidance of Marin Health and Human Services, the State of California, and the CDC. Cedars Health Services Department is in constant contact with various informed resources, including these agencies.

  • Our leadership team has developed protocols around protecting Cedars participants and staff (Cedars Protocols)

  • Cedars Residential Program is operating 24/7 and complying with California’s Shelter in Place order.

  • Currently visitors are not allowed into Cedars residences. Additionally, if a resident leaves to visit family or friends, they may not be permitted to return for two weeks or likely until the Shelter in Place order is lifted by the Governor.

  • Cedars Day Program sites are closed until after the Shelter in Place order has been lifted and it is determined to be safe to return to program settings.

  • Cedars Day Program staff have initiated creative ways to continue program activities virtually – including daily check-in calls, art supply deliveries, and sharing projects, virtual classes, and ideas in a Facebook group.

  • Artist Within – A Cedars Gallery is closed and all Gallery events are cancelled until further notice.
