Like all of you, we here at the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance sincerely hope this health emergency will pass swiftly and with minimal harm and disruption. To that end, we are following the advice of public health authorities and taking proactive steps to stymie the advancement of COVID-19 in our community. That includes avoiding large group gatherings, minimizing in-person contact and social separation suggestions. We believe this is an important moment for our community to show concern, compassion, and prudence by avoiding measures that could put any one of us at risk.
We are monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and other health authorities, and gathering ideas and advice from our peers and partners around the country—all while working to remain flexible and agile. We are monitoring a situation that is now changing on a daily, and sometimes hourly, basis and plan to continue to act as a support system for our community and our nonprofit partners.
Following the best practices of nonprofit leaders and foundations nationwide, we have decided to temporarily transition our operations to remote work and meetings, effective March 17. Please note: We do not anticipate that our capacity will be impacted in any way.
The goal is to make sure we all are safe and stay healthy.
