CAPCOG COVID-19 Precautions

The CAPCOG offices are currently closed to the majority of visitors due to the COVID-19 pandemic; however, all CAPCOG divisions are still operating. If you are visiting CAPCOG for any of the reasons listed below, mask must be worn at all times and social distancing measures must be followed — keep 6-feet apart from staff members and other guest.

Half of the agency’s staff is in the office every day with the remainder of the staff teleworking. During this time, the best way to contact staff is through email. Phone calls to non-information and referral services may not be answered immediately but will returned at their earliest convenience.

Go to the staff directory to reach your desired staff member.

All CAPCOG board and advisory committee meetings are currently be conducted online and instructions to join meeting are being emailed to committee members and are being posted with the events details online.
