COVID-19 Measures for Community Safety

We are now authorized to hold small, in-person events. However, we must continue to follow all local and state guidelines for gathering, such as if these events can be held indoors versus only outdoors. Because these guidelines vary by county and sometimes even city, we will inform you on the social distancing and mask-wearing requirements for your particular area when we plan in person events.

In the meantime, please continue to follow CDC and health department guidelines to prevent spread of COVID-19 illness. This includes: current social distancing, practicing good hand hygiene, avoidance of touching your face with unwashed hands, and  staying home if sick. Please visit the for additional information.

We hope to have updates about larger indoor gatherings soon.
