Coronavirus Update - Revised February 1, 2021 - Review New Information

As vaccinations proceed apace across New York State, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, there is hope for a return to in-person meetings in the future. Public health agencies and officials still recommend that we keep our distance, though, until a much higher percentage of the population is vaccinated. Accordingly, District 53 will continue to hold its events online.

In accordance with research and government guidance, the District 53 leadership team urges all Toastmasters clubs to consider themselves non-essential programs, and to delay opening in-person until the risk to member health is negligible according to Toastmasters International and local authorities.
