Important Chapter Information
The Penn State Alumni Association’s Volunteer Service Team has compiled the below and sent to all Affiliate Group Leaders this week and wanted to share.
“As the outbreak of the novel coronavirus grows internationally and across the country, Penn State is urging its faculty, staff, students, and alumni to be vigilant and to continue to exercise good judgment to stay as safe as possible. In addition to the risk to their personal health, everyone should be aware of the elevated risk to other members of the community-including individuals with compromised immune systems and the elderly-should they become infected. “
Further guidance was sent Friday from Alumni Association CEO, Paul Clifford, that stated “All events that were being planned by the Alumni Association are being canceled, postponed or moved to virtual formats through April 18. We also have asked Alumni Association Chapters and Affiliate Groups to follow University recommendations on events and large gatherings, or local guidelines if they are more restrictive”
As a result, our Chapter is following the directives setforth by the Alumni Association and within the State of New Jersey. We are working to reschedule many of our planned Spring Events, like our Young Alumni Happy Hour, Professional Development Workshop, Community Service Events. We will continue to advertise our events that are scheduled for late Spring with the hopes of them moving forward. Please stay tuned as we continue to update you on a weekly basis in our listserve and social media.
We hope that your families and you remain safe!
