Executive Director Sean Taketa McLaughlin released this statement:
"Public health and safety require us to self-isolate by household and to minimize our exposure to others. Many community based groups, including agencies and jurisdictions are challenged to stay connected. Access Humboldt will continue to provide media resources including open channels for TV, radio and online content, as well as production support and training to help local voices be heard.
"We've already aired fully online meetings across different platforms - including YouTube, Skype and Zoom - and we expect to see many new solutions develop to meet changing demands. Look for more current information, training and online tools for local voices on Access Humboldt - https://www.accesshumboldt.
If you have information that our community needs to hear - please share your content!"
