As you all know, things at the Club have been very different since the pandemic hit.
First, we had to make the difficult but necessary decision to close the Club in accordance with CDC recommendations and State mandates from March 14th to June 15th, 2020. During that time, many meetings went online, and the people of the Club had to stay connected primarily virtually. It was truly amazing to see what our community would do to keep each other afloat.
After a long three-month closure, we were able to reopen our doors to in-person meetings on a limited basis. Capacity restrictions, mask requirements, and social distancing measures were implemented as recommended by state and public health officials. Hours were temporarily reduced until the Club was back to full staff and had a better idea of how operations would look during a pandemic.
Fast forward to June 2021, as vaccines become widely available and community spread continues to decrease, statewide COVID-related restrictions are being lifted. As such, restrictions at the WAC are being lifted as well.
Starting June 22nd, capacity restrictions (both indoors and outdoors) and mask requirements are being lifted. Meeting rooms now look like they did pre-pandemic, with multiple meeting tables and additional seating. We encourage unvaccinated individuals to continue wearing a mask indoors.
As a result of restrictions lifting, we are also resuming social events and in-person Board and Committees Meetings.
The past 16 months have been incredibly trying for many. We are lucky to have such a supportive community at the WAC to get through these times together.
Thank you all for your patience and cooperation with COVID related restrictions, for looking out for one another, and for keeping the recovery community united.
