The first quarter of 2020 has seen a slow creep and eventual pandemic grip the world. As we practice social distancing to keep the most vulnerable members of our population safe, the repercussions of living responsibly during this time have become apparent. We’ve seen our events cancelled out of both necessity and an abundance of caution around the world. It is vital to follow the guidelines of local law and health agencies, but understandably sad for those who find themselves feeling more distanced from their close friends and chosen families.
Remember always that inclusivity demands that we keep our large and diverse populace safe, and that in this time of giving up the gatherings of our beloved hobby, we are creating a safer environment for everyone. It is just and courteous that we practice good personal hygiene and social distancing as needed to ensure we emerge from this time unscathed. Use the digital resources at hand to continue to reach out to one another and stay connected. We’ll all join each other for some age-appropriate beverages soon.
