Given the current challenges posed by COVID-19, we are taking precautions such as having Clorox wipes, Lysol spray, and hand sanitizer at our events. It is also important that each of us follow CDC recommendations. These include simple daily actions like regularly washing hands, not sharing food with others, and avoiding unnecessary contact.
