Effective May 13, District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser has ordered the closure of all non-essential offices in the District until June 8, 2020 to contain the spread of COVID-19.  To comply with her directive, all COSCDA employees will be teleworking and accessible via email and phone during this time.

COSCDA is also closely monitoring the COVID-19 progress and continuing to review the need to cancel or reschedule in-person trainings as necessary.  We will notify COSCDA members once decisions to either proceed with, cancel or reschedule all future trainings scheduled between now and June.

We appreciate your understanding and flexibility.  Most importantly, all of us at COSCDA wish you and yours good health as we work through this unprecedented national crisis.
