The Golden Rain Foundation has just issued a notice regarding cancellation of some activities related to the Coronavirus threat. Here is the notice.

“As the Coronavirus and flu prevention continues to be paramount, together we must be committed to being diligent in our efforts and take proactive steps to prepare for the possibility of more cases in Orange County and possibly locally.

Public health officials have begun to issue notices to consider cutting back on public events and outings. In support of the suggestion and as part of general precautions being given by the public health agencies, GRF has elected to cancel GRF bus trips, events and Saturday night dances until June 1, 2020 or until such time these precautions are no longer requested on public health sites. Each GRF committee meeting is being evaluated on the need for actionable items for business continuation. If there are no required actions, meetings may be cancelled.

In accordance with the March 11, 2020 notice issued by Governor Newson, the Recreation Department will be encouraging club and/or independent events to consider cancellation of their gatherings or events:

“… The state’s public health experts have determined that gatherings should be postponed or cancelled across the state until at least the end of March. Non-essential gatherings must be limited to no more than 250 people, while smaller events can proceed only if the organizers can implement social distancing of 6 feet per person. Gatherings of individuals who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 should be limited to no more than 10 people, while also following social distancing guidelines…”

GRF cares about our Shareholders/Members and Employees, and we will continue to provide communications and take preventative measures during this time of due concern. While we have implemented additional cleaning, disinfectant procedures and staff training, we are also implementing basic precautions for health and wellness based upon information on the Center on Diseases Controls web site,

If you have purchased a ticket for a GRF bus trip or event, please stop by the Recreation Department for a refund.

Through Community unity, due diligence and working together supporting prevention, we will prevail during this time of concern. As with all past flu outbreaks, this one will eventually come to an end.
