COVID-19 Update

We believe in the science and power of prevention. That’s why Prevent is following social distancing guidelines during the global pandemic. Staff are working from home and creating innovative ways to conduct business, connect community and support youth. Meetings are virtual and events are cancelled until the state provides clearance to meet again. We will update this notice when changes to these practices are made. Learn more at ESD 112 COVID-19 page for resources, and the Washington COVID website.
