Important! Due to the Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Events May be Cancelled or Postponed.

Please Refer to the Presenting Organization or Event Venue for the Latest Updates.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has displayed serious destructive and disruptive impacts on communities with advanced community spread. In an effort to prevent an overwhelm of healthcare capacity, to keep as many people healthy as possible, and to minimize long-term economic impact, many local events, performances, conferences, meetings, and fundraisers are being postponed or cancelled. Please check with presenting organizations and venues for current event status. It is unclear what the long term economic impact will be. Please seek ways to support organizations and businesses with cancelled events and fundraisers.

Commonsense Practices for Individuals
• Wash your hands for 20 seconds, especially after sneezing or coughing into a tissue, after using the bathroom, before eating, and after being in a public setting
• If you can’t wash, then use hand sanitizer as directed
• Cough and sneeze into your elbow or a tissue. Wash hands after discarding the tissue
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
• Limit close contact with those who are sick
• Stay away from others if you are sick, including staying home from work
• Clean surfaces that are touched often, including your mobile phone

Pandemic Etiquette & Social Distancing
• Call, email, or text before visiting homes and offices.
• Hit the pause button on hugs and handshakes.
• Recognize that underlying conditions may be invisible and individual responses to this virus vary widely. You owe your fellow humans a wide berth, even if you feel strong and healthy.
• Connect, but do so in ways that are not invasive.
