|Our wood-turning group is committed to the advancement of wood-turning.|
Fellow members of Strait Turners,We will continue to assess the situation for April and urge you each to take personal care as the situation develops
We are going
to skip our end of March meeting to be cautious and
avoid placing anyone at risk in the rapidly evolving
Covid19 situation. The general guidance from the
local Health Department for the population as a
whole is reassuring about the need to not yet close
schools or large events in our area. https://www.myclallamcounty.com/2020/03/10/clallam-health-officer-says-covid-19-shouldnt-close-schools-of-events-locally-yet/
However, our membership is not school-age or even “average” working age. The health officer admits that those with underlying health conditions should exercise caution about possible exposure to Covid19. CDC and NIH are bluntly saying today that our age-group should avoid travel and large meetings. Those of us who are over age 60 and often have multiple health issues must be especially careful. We simply do not know what the local situation will be in terms of hard evidence of Covid19 presence by the end of March but it is unlikely to remain constant with today’s conditions. We must make community announcements now about cancellation of any meetings and therefore we are cancelling the March meeting.
