WWA Members & Friends: The COVID-19 coronavirus risk is significant. The WWA is monitoring these risks with our members and the public in mind. As such, WWA encourages members to check on the status of WWA events before planning to attend to ensure that the event or activity has not been canceled due to elevated concerns. If an event is scheduled to take place, WWA encourages you to use your best judgement for your own health and consider the health of other attendees if you have symptoms. WWA will carefully consider the risks posed before canceling an event. For further info re COVID19, please see https://www.usa.gov/coronavirus
Stay home! Keep your social distance! Be well. See you on the other side of this thing.
