Update from the LCHA:

Due to the rapidly escalating pandemic crisis, LCHA has closed all offices and sent most staff home. Those who can work from home will do so. Maintenance will still continue to respond to emergency calls, but will be operating with a skeleton crew in order to minimize exposure and to avoid spreading the virus as much as possible. LCHA phones will still be monitored remotely and messages returned in as timely a manner as possible. Thank you, please stay safe and stay home if you can.
