Forum facilitators, meeting Tuesday afternoon, decided that the Forum would resume in-person meetings on Tuesday, May 24, at 8:30 a.m. at Belmont Center, 700 Parkwood Ave. Masks will be required for entry into the Belmont Center. Seating will be limited. For Forum participants not ready to rejoin in-person meetings, every effort will be made to provide livestreams to the Forum website, at Facebook and YouTube. If livestreaming is interrupted, video will be posted on the website later. After two years of pandemic disruption, perhaps it goes without saying that the May 24 restart date could be adjusted if there are serious developments in COVID-19 community infection rates.
