(Please note, this is a temporary department and position created to support the community during the COVID-19 Pandemic. There will be a time when the position and/or department will be eliminated. There are a few different scenarios when that may happen: when we are at a point where the pandemic has subsided, GVH is able to manage the workload with existing staff, or when grant-funded COVID relief dollars come to an end, etc. We want to be fully transparent about this so as not to create any confusion when the time comes.
