COVID-19 Resources

Dear Appalachian COG Communities and Partners,

I hope that you, your families, and communities are keeping safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During this challenging time, the Appalachian Council of Governments is continuing to provide services to our citizens and communities while taking precautions to ensure the safety of our clients and staff. Our office has been closed since mid-March and will remain closed at least through late May. In accordance with Governor McMaster’s Executive Order 2020-21, employees are working remotely and operating under normal business hours with minimal on-site staff.

We are available to connect via remote teleconferencing options and other communication platforms to conduct business and maintain services to all our communities. Aging Services are our most essential operations and we understand needs are changing as a result of COVID-19. Our staff and partners have been doing an outstanding job of making sure seniors are receiving meals and other critical services. The information included in this Services Continue During COVID-19 report is intended to provide a brief update on all of our services during the pandemic. If you have any questions, or if ACOG can help your community in any way, please let us know.
