SEPO & Covid-19 

The below conditions concerning SEPO & Covid-19 will more than likely change depending on many unknown factors in the future. The SEPO board is trying to protect our employees as well as our residents. We all hope we will soon be trending back towards what life was before Covid-19. Thank you for your understanding.
