A Note on COVID-19

To Our RLACEI Retirees:

We haven’t made it through the pandemic yet, and unfortunately the vaccination process has reached a few stumbling blocks. As of this writing, Los Angeles County has surpassed one million reported positive cases with a population of approximately 10 million. Many of our seniors are experiencing anxiety and depression as they are unable to visit with family and friends. The Los Angeles Times dated last Sept. 5 reported that young adults between the ages of 18 and 29 were suffering an elevated rate of depression higher than the general public.

With the distribution of the vaccine, there is hope that soon we will be able to get back to some type of normalcy. Please wear a mask for the health of yourself and others. And as always, we ask everyone to continue to stay safe and healthy both physically and mentally.
