Preventative Measures Save Lives

We must all do our part to stop the spread of novel coronavirus. SEIU 721 strongly encourages all members to take every precaution to limit the transmission of COVID-19 in our communities, including following the State of California’s “Shelter at Home” guidelines, practicing social distancing of at least six feet, and frequent hand washing.

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, SEIU 721 worksite organizers and staff are working remotely for the duration of the state’s “Safer at Home” ordinance.
