To our Consumers, Contractors and Community Partners,
Rolling Start is committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our consumers and our staff. As has been documented, older adults and people with disabilities with chronic conditions are at higher risk of serious illness with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Given the recommendations by the CDC and California Governor Gavin Newsom, we believe it is our responsibility to take further prudent steps to inhibit, rather than accelerate the spread of the virus in San Bernardino County.
Rolling Start will be limiting non-essential meetings, e.g., workgroups, support groups, in-home visits and other community events. Staff at our offices will be conducting virtual one-on-one consumer meetings, classes, support groups, job-club and other services via phone and/or internet. Rolling Start functions are still operational. We are committed to supporting our consumers’ goals and contract obligations, we will just do it differently.
In the meantime, we encourage everyone to help stop the spread of Covid-19 by getting vaccinated. The vaccine is safe, free, and effective. COVID-19 vaccines are available to everyone age 12 and up—regardless of immigration or insurance status. Stay healthy, protect others and help us end the pandemic. Find a walk-in clinic or make an appointment today at myturn.ca.gov. or call us for assistance. We can help you schedule an appointment and arrange transportation for you.
Finally, as we all have seen, this is a very fluid and ever-changing situation. We are monitoring the information provided by the CDC, the WHO and our local public health agency. We will continue to adjust our operations based on their guidance. If you have any questions or concerns about your preparation for COVID-19 or have questions about how to access services, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at (909)890-9516 or (760)949-7626.
