COVID-19 Message from Soroptimist Headquarters
Dear SIA Members,
Care for your wellbeing and safety inspires this coronavirus update about SIAHQ’s efforts in this emerging and fluid situation.
SIAHQ is taking all developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the situation. We feel strongly that it is our collective responsibility to focus on the facts and to act with common sense and sound judgement, taking the advice of the relevant authorities and scientists.
We continue to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely and are listening carefully to the questions and concerns we receive from you. Please continue to share your questions and concerns.
Every part of the world is experiencing a different rate of COVID-19 spread. We urge all members to follow their local, regional and national recommendations to prevent its spread and to protect yourselves. Follow the recommended hygiene and distancing guidelines. Check these sources to stay abreast of developments:
With region conferences around the corner, and many Dream Program events underway, you must consider the risk facing people in your community.
What can your club do to ensure you support the best defense for the spread of COVID-19? In view of the seriousness and risks associated with coronavirus (COVID-19) infection—if you are in North America, Japan and Korea, you must postpone or cancel all club events through at least April 15
We wish you, your families and your communities good health and resilience in the weeks to come.
With care and concern for you,
Elizabeth M. Lucas, CAE Executive Director and CEO Soroptimist International of the Americas, Inc
