Working from home

In light of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak, the Visual AIDS staff will be working from home beginning Thursday, March 12th.

The Visual AIDS office will remain closed until further notice. We will be answering emails, so please feel free to reach out to staff members at their direct emails addresses, or to our general email at [email protected]. Please do NOT call the office number or stop by the office, as there will be no one to assist you.

At Visual AIDS, we recognize that many people in our community are living with HIV and AIDS, chronic illnesses, and disabilities, and that many of us are at higher risk of acquiring the coronavirus (COVID-19). During this rapidly changing time, we urge you to seek care and practice precautions and preventive health measures such as those listed here.
