COVID-19 Update
To all of our members working tirelessly on responding to COVID-19 – we thank you. Our online community, MySHEA, can connect you with members who are sharing your exhaustion as well as sharing what they are doing in their facilities. We hope you will continue to use MySHEA to reach out to others to ask questions and find support. This is when we need each other the most. If there is anything you need from SHEA, we are available. In an effort to protect the health and well-being of staff, members, and visitors working in SHEA's office, we have started operations on a virtual basis. Rest assured, we are not suspending or closing operations. We will continue to serve our community and you can feel free to reach out to any of us, at any time. We know all of you are under a tremendous amount of stress, SHEA wishes you all the best in the weeks ahead.  We hope the links below continue to be helpful.  If you have anything you'd like to share, please reach out me at kweinshel@shea-online.org.
