COVID-19 Updates and Resources

  • SMC is Open

    We are open! Masks are not required (Early Learning Center excluded) but you are welcome to wear one if you prefer. We have hand sanitizer stations throughout the building. We will ask basic COVID-related health questions when you arrive. If you are experiencing ANY COVID-related symptoms (fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea), please do not come in. Call 814-452-6113 to speak with a caseworker instead.

    If you prefer to work remotely (email, phone, paperwork drop-off), we are happy to accommodate you. We have a mail slot to the left of our door where you can drop items off for caseworkers. Please include your caseworker's name on the envelope.

    St. Martin Early Learning Center is open. Please see their reopening plan (on this page) for more information. Note that masks ARE required for everyone at the early learning center per Department of Human Service regulations.
