Like many of you, we have been closely monitoring the many concerning updates on the spread of COVID-19, both locally and around the world. In an effort to limit the pathways for disease transmission in our community and out of an abundance of caution for our community, we have paused planning of our upcoming events including all meetings with our board, volunteers, and members of our ongoing Mentorship program. We will not host any in-person events in the foreseeable future and we will resume planning once concerns surrounding the COVID-19 subside.
In the meantime, we are carefully reviewing what programs can take place virtually without diminishing their value to the community.
I know we’ve all been inundated with messages about preventing the spread of COVID-19 and its current impact on the nation. In lieu of providing repetitive information about washing your hands and other steps you can take, I’d like to take a moment to encourage you to practice whatever form of self-care is available to you as well as read up on ways to quell coronavirus anxiety.
