Covid-19 Update for the Center of Achievement/Brown Center

We want you to know that the health and wellbeing for all is our top priority and we are closely monitoring the evolving situation regarding the pandemic. It is important that we prioritize the safety of our community members, faculty and staff, students and visitors. That’s why we are practicing and enforcing best practices for social distancing and self-isolation in the midst of this ongoing health situation.

As you know, safety recommendations including those for our clients, their caregivers, students, faculty and staff can and will likely change in accordance to the CDC, our state and local governing agencies in addition to the protocols for Institutes of Higher Education (IHEs). We are thinking about all parties and look forward to assisting you again in the future when full re-opening guidelines have been completely lifted.  We encourage you to stay safe and healthy. This includes practicing safe social distancing.  Until then, you can still join us in our virtual exercise program via zoom.  

What to expect from us?

Unfortunately, there is no telling when things will be “back to normal” in any sense. Rest assured that we’re doing our best to keep you informed and taking precaution for a safe return. We are carefully monitoring the situation (just like you) and, at this moment, cannot provide an estimated time of fully reopening. This means operations will continue to be modified and limited during this time.  However, our plan is to continue running our virtual program concurrently with the resumption of a small scale in-person program based on required protocols and guidelines.  The most important thing is to make sure the reopening in the future happens in a safe environment.

Visit us on our website at for updates on how we are managing safety and news on reopening. You can also view CSUN and LAC DPH COVID 19 websites for additional information.  We’re still available to answer your questions and respond to any concerns, though do keep in mind, the response time might be a little longer as we continue to get more information. We’re working diligently to adapt to new circumstances while planning for the future. We’re all in this together, learning together, and adapting together. Our clients have always been the heart of our center. We’re grateful to you, your ongoing support, and that you’re doing your part to keep everyone safe.
