The Arc of Chester County is closely monitoring the changing and evolving information regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are working around the clock to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all those we serve in The Arc community. Our Program Directors are working closely with their teams to continue offering the uninterrupted services and assistance our population relies on, especially those with disabilities. We are following the directives issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), local health departments, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Arc will continue monitoring advisories and government directives as they relate to the pandemic and keep you posted of any changes. Stay safe and be well.
