Covia has established a COVID-19 Task Force and will provide updates to our communities and staff as well as to this website as the situation develops. Read our latest update here. You can find the data tracking cases of COVID-19 in Covia’s communities on this page

Some of our communities are beginning to offer opportunities for family members to have in-person visits or for potential residents to take tours. Please contact the community directly to plan your visit.

Letter from Kevin Gerber, President and CEO

Covia has set up an email inbox at C19info@covia.org where you can reach the COVID-19 Incident Command Center with your questions, comments, or concerns. Please contact us and we will respond as soon as we can.

As of 5:00 pm, March 16, our Support Services office in Walnut Creek is closed in response to Shelter In Place orders given by the Contra Costa Department of Public Health. Support Services employees will continue working remotely and will be available during normal business hours. Covia Communities continue to operate and offer all essential services for our residents. 

We encourage individuals or organizations who won’t be able to meet in person to consider Well Connected as a great alternative. Contact us at  877.797.7299, or coviaconnections@covia.org for more information. 

The 9th Annual Celtic Cup Golf Tournament has been cancelled due to the pandemic. Covia Foundation will return to Berkeley Country Club next year, so save April 26, 2021 for the 10th Anniversary Celtic Cup. We are so grateful to this year’s sponsors and participants who have pledged their support despite the cancellation. Their support will directly help provide services for vulnerable and isolated seniors during these difficult times. You can help match those dollars – and make a difference to seniors in need – by making a gift at covia.org/donate.

We recommend the following sites for resources on the latest information and appropriate responses:
