The past 24 hours have marked a turning point in how the country is responding to the risks associated with the COVID 19 virus.
We have decided to cancel all Estuary Partnership events and close our offices beginning tomorrow March 14 through Sunday March 29. We are asking ourselves to minimize our social interactions (in addition to normal strict hygiene protocols). This seems to be the best course of action recommended by the CDC.
We are evaluating things as they arise, and will keep you updated.
Our employees will do as much work as they can from home, but of course there will be interruptions to our normal business and work. We appreciate the investments made in us and our work by our funders and we will stay in touch with you as all this evolves. We thank our students, teachers, volunteers and restoration and monitoring partners for your hard work and commitments and look forward to getting back to full effort with you all as soon as we can.
Right now, like you, our focus is on your health and ours and doing what we can to help contain the virus and reduce the rate the disease is spreading.
