Optimax's Response to the Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19)

Since mid-February, we have been monitoring the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) situation daily and offering regular updates to staff as new information becomes available. We plan to continue that practice. Optimax realizes that both the spread of this serious disease and our decisions about it, affect not only our programs and planning, but the lives of individuals. For many, the steps we' re taking to protect the health of the community may involve significant inconvenience and personal sacrifice. Please accept our gratitude in advance for your goodwill and understanding. I also hope we can be sensitive to each other's burdens in this situation and make accommodations when we can.

- Rick Plympton, CEO
