  • Our staff will be available through phone calls and email and will limit all non-essential in-person meetings.
  • All individuals allowed into the lobby MAY wear self-provided face masks. GCHA will provide masks to individuals at request. It is strongly suggested for anyone who is sick or has recently been sick to not enter the building.
