Covid-19 will disrupt events over coming months, please check society websites for updates.
Alcester & Distrist LHS have posted the following announcement, and you can be sure that many if not all Societies will have a similar policy covering the coming months:
With the current pandemic of coronavirus, we (i.e. A&DLHS) have decided:
- The Society has a duty of care to its members, visitors and visiting speakers; and the age profile of members is high and over 70’s are in a higher risk group, particularly those with underlying health problems.
- There is a need to avoid non-essential contact and increased social distancing is recommended.
- The April & May meetings will be cancelled and the speakers invited to take part in next year’s programme.
- The situation will be reviewed on a monthly basis and further meetings may be cancelled as necessary until the virus is under control.
The monthly newsletter will continue to be produced and circulated by email only, as we will be unable to produce and deliver paper copies.
Do all keep safe, heed all of the public warnings and advice, and I look forward to seeing you all at our next meeting, which I hope will not be too far away.
