Covid-19 Safety

Ongoing Pandemic in California:

We began our active monitoring of the ongoing pandemic here in Northern California after the Shelter in Place Order went into effect in March of 2020.

Since then, various waves of infection and fluctuations in local hospital capacity has only strengthened our resolve to limit any possible Covid exposure for not only our clients who may be high risk for Covid complications, but for our own staff members who themselves are high risk or have close family members that are high risk.

Therefore, we continue to operate offering client meetings only via phone or video conferencing with clients for our various services. In-person meetings are not available.

Office Operations in 2023:

Please see our “What to Expect” page for instructions on what to expect for your tax preparation appointment.

We require our staff to be fully vaccinated (meaning they have had either one J&J vaccine dose, or both doses of either Moderna or Pfizer). All employees have received the recent Bivalent Booster.

In the interest of keeping all of our staff and family members safe, we will continue to wear masks in the office for the foreseeable future. This means that while a staff member may sit at their workstation un-masked, they will put a mask on when moving around the suite in common areas, while maintaining social distancing.

Anyone accessing our office suite will be asked to put on a mask while they are in our office space. We have appreciated the understanding and cooperation with our office policy regarding masks indoors.

Local Resources/Info:

For further information on the pandemic on a local level, we have a post on our blog listing sources that have been providing the most up-to-date information and metrics for our local area. We have found these sources to be helpful and reliable. You can find that post by clicking here.

Our primary concern remains keeping you, our staff and our community as safe as possible during the pandemic. We encourage you all to continue to abide by guidelines set by the Santa Clara County Health Department, the State of California Health Department, the WHO and the CDC.

Practice social distancing (six feet or more between people), self-isolation or quarantine, wash your hands frequently, wear a mask when out in public, and work from home as much as possible.

We are humbled and grateful for the outpouring of understanding and support from everyone, and we will continue to do our level best to process your tax returns and answer questions in the meantime. Please take care of yourselves and your families!
