Arrangements have been made to separately house residents who are symptomatic and to implement social distancing where possible.

Emergency financial assistance at Ferguson Community Empowerment Center is available by appointment only. 

Other service centers continue normal operations, though visitors will be restricted for the time being, except for thrift stores, which are closed until further notice.
