  • Educating our staff about CDC and WHO preventative guidelines.
  • Allowing remote work for staff for whom this is an option.
  • Postponing upcoming events.
    • Our HFB Art Gallery Reception, originally scheduled for March 21 has been postponed until further notice.
    • The No Kids on the Floor Luncheon, originally scheduled for June 2, has been pushed back to September 1st to allow for outreach.
