At a virtual meeting this morning, the Forum’s facilitators agreed to suspend Forum meetings until further notice. The facilitators will meet again, electronically, with co-founder Sarah Stevenson on or about March 31 to review public advisories at that time on how to protect community health during April.
In the meantime, the Forum will use its website and e-mail to pass along links to authoritative information about guarding public health and where people can find help or provisions.
People with information to share should send links and explanatory material via e-mail during this suspension of Tuesday meetings.
The Forum did not meet today. Updates to announcements include information mailed in. Notice of cancellations and postponements received thus far are included. The Forum website’s current announcements will continue to be updated throughout the week as notifications are received. If you sent in material on an event earlier that has now been canceled, please send a notice to the Forum.
