Dear Fellow Volunteers,
The CDC, state, county, and local restrictions for social gatherings have been changing greatly over these past few weeks and days. As restrictions relax, we are prepared to move to a Phase 2 opening of our fundraising efforts to include all banquets/events of less than 250 total persons starting immediately. We will continue to monitor and adhere to all national, state and local guidelines as we begin this Phase 2 opening. Should restrictions change due to an outbreak of the COVID- 19 virus in a particular state or county, you should be prepared to modify or potentially postpone an event to meet those updated guidelines. Our goal is reopen and hold safe events for our staff, our volunteers and attendees. This is truly great news and what all of you have been waiting to hear. With this news comes a set of checks and balances as you begin the planning of these events.
Here are the NWTF’s Phase 2 guidelines for events to occur:
Again, please keep in mind that guidelines and restrictions are changing frequently. Flexibility and cooperation are needed as we navigate our Phase 2 reopening. We want to be smart and careful as we move forward.
In addition, a high density of events may occur in a short period of time so we will need empowered volunteers to assist with events as RD’s could have multiple events in a very short period of time. Let’s work as a team to be successful as we carefully work to reopen.
Thanks to all of you as you embrace this Phase 2 re-opening. Stay safe!
