THIS CLASS IS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!

Boulder Community Health’s highest priority is to ensure we do everything within our control to maintain the safety of our patients, staff and the overall community. This requires us to take every opportunity to contain, control and reduce the impact of the COVID-19 virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), limiting public gatherings is a very effective tool for slowing the spread of COVID-19. We are following that CDC recommendation and cancelling all non-essential public gatherings intended for community members. This is effective immediately and includes our PWRMoves Class offered at the Boulder West Age Well Center and the East Boulder Community Center.

We recognize that activities like community education programs, support groups and these classes are highly valued by community members and the BCH staff who provide those services. Accordingly, BCH has started a taskforce that is working to identify alternative ways of providing such activities, if possible.

Thank you for supporting this effort to safeguard our community. I encourage you to visit the homepage of our website, www.bch.org, for regular updates about COVID-19.
