Cancellation Notification
Your health and safety is the PJCC’s highest priority.

The San Mateo County Department of Health issued recommendations to help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Included in the recommendations was social distancing, with a goal of reducing the occasions when large numbers of people come together and potentially are exposed to the virus circulating in the community at large.

Because of this, we have currently cancelled in-person meetings of Let’s Talk About It and Life: It’s Complicated. You are invited to join our virtual conversations via Zoom.

Other in-person Discussion Groups have been cancelled through May. We will contact registrants when we have more information.

Thank you for your understanding during this quickly evolving situation.
