A Special Appreciation

Thank you to the CPLF staff for the work they’re doing to support our most vulnerable individuals during this unprecedented time. I have been extremely impressed with the innovation and speed at which CPLF staff have altered all programming and outreach to support those we serve. Together, CPLF has successfully adapted to a pandemic of epic proportions and now we must remain diligent until life can return to normal.

Please read through the following resources and notices for up-to-date information on how our organization is prioritizing the safety of our community.

Together, we will get through this. –

How to Take a Rapid Test

With current circumstances, Covid-19 test appointments are getting more and more difficult to set up. If there are no appointments available, you may take an at home rapid antigen test that you may purchase at a local drug store. For more information on how to correctly do a test at home, watch the video tutorial.
