Like many of you, we are concerned about the occurrence of the COVID-19 (Novel coronavirus). We continue to closely monitor recommendations and protocols established by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and how the spread of this virus might impact the volunteer activities we engage in in our communities.
Many of our activities involve working with at-risk populations such as the elderly or those with pre-existing conditions. It is very important that you exercise strict adherence to the preventative actions recommended by the WHO and CDC when working with these populations. Avoiding large gatherings of people is one of the recommendations for preventing the spread of the virus. This may mean postponing volunteer events in your communities. We encourage you to err on the side of caution when determining whether to hold or attend events.
Please be safe and keep others safe.
Yours in Pioneering,
