Until further notice, the Post will remain closed. We had a member in who *may* have been exposed to the Coronavirus, and the board of directors has met and decided that we are going to remain closed until we can have a professional cleaning staff come in and clean/disinfect the building and ensure our staff are safe. How long that is going to take is still uncertain, but we’re guessing it could be up to two weeks. Hopefully less, but we will try and brace for the worst.
This may seem like a drastic step, and we’re not trying to spread any hysteria, but we have a large number of members over 50 who would be considered the “vulnerable” population, and the risk is too great.
We will do our best to keep our staff paid during these tough times, because we value them and we are family. We want them to be able to take care of their loved ones without worrying about being able to afford the sky-rocketing price of toilet paper (and food, I suppose!). We ask that you take care of yourselves and check on our vulnerable friends, family and neighbors – see if there’s anyone you know that might need errands run or groceries. We will get through this together by being safe, calm and caring for one another.
We look forward to seeing everyone when we re-open! Stay safe!
–The Officers of Post 7294
