 COVID-19 OFFICE PROTOCOL 

Update: Masks Recommended, But Not Required:

In response to L.A. County’s recent move into the medium tier of COVID-19 transmission and recent updates from the CDC, my office will no longer require masks. My office welcomes clients who choose to mask, and we respect each other’s masking preferences.

Everyone in my office is  vaccinated and my office is open only to those that are also fully vaccinated, which includes a booster when eligible.  However, masks are still recommended. If needed, virtual 40-minute consultations via Zoom are available to ARAG,  MetLife members, and current clients only.  

Your best source of accurate and current information about COVID-19 is The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) .








GET VACCINATED and GET YOUR BOOSTER when eligible.  Click here to schedule an appointment through the California Department of Public Health.
