|Message from President Paul Denig on Coronavirus Impact on DACOR Activities||March 16, 2020|
Dear DACOR Members:
Given the current public health situation arising from the coronavirus, the Executive Committee of DACOR has decided to suspend all programs as well as private events at DACOR Bacon House starting on March 13th, until further notice. The guest rooms will not be available for use.
In line with other similar organizations in Washington, DC, we are following the guidance of local and national health officials who recommend extra caution for vulnerable populations. As a large percentage of our membership and guests falls into age groups which are at higher risk, we are taking this step to ensure that their health is not compromised by attendance at DACOR events.
DACOR leadership is monitoring the public health situation carefully and will follow guidance from health authorities on when it may be safe to resume events at DACOR Bacon House. While events are suspended, our staff will work to maintain the House as a clean and safe environment to the extent possible, consistent with their own health protection.
Committee and Board Meetings will proceed unless otherwise announced. However, participation will be by telephone rather than in-person. Please follow the specific instructions for calling in that are included in the invitation for each committee meeting.
Please be in touch with DACOR staff to address any questions or concerns you may have.
During this interim period, please remember to follow the guidelines of the CDC and others to keep yourself safe and healthy. We look forward to welcoming you back to our House as soon as circumstances permit.
President of DACOR
