Maintaining Healthy Chapter Operations
Guiding Principals to Keep in Mind
The more an individual interacts with others, and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread. COVID-19 is mostly spread by respiratory droplets released when people talk, cough, and/or sneeze. It is thought that the virus may spread to hands from a contaminated surface and then to the nose or mouth, causing infection.
Levels of Risk - Low, Moderate, High
- Lowest Risk: Chapter members engage in virtual-only meetings, activities, and events.
- More Risk: Small in-person meetings, activities, and events. Individuals remain spaced at least 6 feet apart and do not share objects.
- Highest Risk: Full-sized in-person meetings, activities, and events. Members are not spaced apart, share materials or supplies, and mix between meetings and activities.
