Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information & Resources

During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency, Tri-Counties Regional Center (TCRC) is constantly monitoring information, assessing the needs of our communities, and tailoring our response throughout the Tri-Counties area to the best of our ability. While all TCRC offices will be closed until further notice due to the Stay At Home Order issued by Governor Newsom at 6:30 PM on Thursday March 19, 2020, TCRC remains open for business. TCRC employees are working remotely to be able to continue to serve our community. If your service needs have been impacted by the COVID-19 emergency, please email or call your Service Coordinator. They are available and will respond promptly. In addition, we have established On-Call Manager telephone numbers for each office and a general email contact for each office that can be used to contact the management team during this time should you need their assistance.  Check this page for updates.
