Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, 2020 and in keeping with recommendations by Bay Area county departments of public health, OFC staff have worked from home, or at the office in very limited number, socially distanced and masked.   •  We look forward to connecting with you–safely! Please call the office at 415-981-1960 or email staff directly to make arrangements.
