SF-DCT OFFICE TEMPORARILY CLOSES DUE TO COVID-19 SAFETY CONCERNS
Here is the message from the SF-DCT website:
"As the national emergency regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) unfolds, we here at the SF-DCT want you to know that your health and safety and that of our employees is most important. In light of recent developments, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our offices. We are taking proactive steps to monitor mail, emails, and phone call messages. Please continue to check the Settlement Facility website (www.sfdct.com) and the Claimants' Advisory Committee website (www.tortcomm.org) for updates. In the meantime, we hope you stay safe, and we look forward to the days when this challenge is behind us."
We do not know how long the COVID-19 virus will affect all of us or when the Settlement Facility will re-open. We realize that many of you will have questions about your claim status, payment, cure deadline, etc. The CAC is continuing to work closely with the Settlement Facility to ensure that these important issues are addressed, and we will post updates on our website, the CAC Facebook page, and in future newsletters.
Please stay safe.
