FYI: It’s a just a little over two weeks before our next RC scheduled for Sat., March 19. I know our team of friendly, skilled volunteers are all looking forward to seeing each other and helping the public fix their beloved, but broken, worn, torn items. I’m still requiring that all of our volunteers and all RC attendees, wear a mask inside the Senior Center. Why?
Although Orange County’s COVID numbers are declining, per yesterday’s NY Times Covid Case and Risk Tracker, “If you’re fully vaccinated, your risk of infection is lower and your risk of severe disease is much lower than if you are unvaccinated.” However, “Indoor activities could be risky right now. Avoid large indoor events with more than fifty people, especially if some participants may be unvaccinated...Consider wearing a mask if there is a chance some attendees may be unvaccinated... You can lower your risk during grocery shopping or other public indoor activities by choosing places where people wear masks...”
All the Hudson Valley RCs, held in Feb, including Gardiner’s, held last weekend (11 coaches & 24 attendees) required everyone to wear masks. Warwick welcomed 114 attendees ( from 14 towns in NY, and 4 in NJ), in four hours, to our Nov., 2021 cafe. That’s a lot of people gathered in a small space, .
Saturday, March 19, 10 a.m.-2:00 p.m. (last repair accepted 1:30 p.m.)
