A word on TETNA’s upcoming activities amid the coronavirus outbreak


UPDATE 12:50 P.M. MARCH 16: We are sad to announce we will be canceling this year’s Spring Egg Hunt given the legitimate concerns over the spread of the coronavirus and the uncertainty that remains with less than three weeks until the event. The CDC is now recommending that citizens avoid gatherings of 50 or more for the next eight weeks. The decision to cancel our popular Egg Hunt, though regrettable, is an obvious one at this point. Thanks to Ruckus & Glee for its support this year and for Maghan White for all her prep work. We hope to be able to offer another family-oriented event for our neighborhood later this year, as conditions allow. We’re in this together, East Tosa.

PREVIOUS ANNOUNCEMENT FOLLOWS:

With many public gatherings being canceled or postponed this month in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, Tosa East Towne Neighborhood Association would like to update our members and neighbors about the status of the several events planned for this spring.

Plans are still underway for Spring Egg Hunt on April 4, TETNA’s Annual Meeting on April 15, Run Tosa Run on May 16 and the TETNA Neighborhood Rummage Sale on June 6. At this time, we have not made any decisions to cancel or postpone any of these events, however, we realize that may become necessary depending on how the response to the coronavirus evolves between now and then.

We are hopeful that conditions will improve in time to proceed with our Spring Egg Hunt, but we will update you on the status of that and the other events as further decisions are made.

This is an unprecedented and difficult time, though with the precautions now being implemented by institutions and organizations throughout our community, the residents of Tosa East Towne can be part of efforts to minimize the impact of the virus. And although “social distancing” has been identified as part of this public health strategy, we hope residents will not forget their neighbors and will find ways to connect with and serve each other.

If you have ideas you’d like to share for ways Tosa East Towne can respond, please send them to info@tosaeasttowne.org. We hope to see you soon.
