COVID-19 Response: TJCOG Offices Closed to the Public

Effective March 17, 2020, the Triangle J Council of Governments’ (TJCOG) offices will close to the public to follow NC Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS) guidance regarding COVID-19 mitigation. The offices will remain closed to the public until further notice; this may change based on future information from NC DHHS and the NC Governor’s Office.

During this time, TJCOG staff will be available to assist member governments working to maintain service to residents, address administrative challenges, or reduce the spread of COVID-19. General service requests can be made by phone: (919) 549-0551, or by email: tjcog@tjcog.org. Although TJCOG offices will be closed to the public, staff will be teleworking to continue the mission of the organization.

Additionally, Triangle J Area Agency on Aging (TJAAA) staff continue to work to ensure county agencies and service providers are supported and the region’s Long-Term Care Ombudsmen are available by phone or email to assist families and residents with concerns during this time. Individuals looking for further information or assistance from TJAAA can reach staff by phone at this toll free number: (800) 310-9777, or by email: aging@tjcog.org.

Future news releases and updates on TJCOG and TJAAA operations will be posted to the organization’s website, www.tjcog.org, and on organizational Twitter and Facebook accounts, @TJCOGnc.
