This week ACT postponed the Social Media, Marketing & Storytelling Workshop scheduled for March 10 due to the growing public health concerns related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. We do not wish to risk the health and safety of anyone in our community so we will reschedule the workshop to be an online webinar that will also be recorded. We will announce a new date and registration soon.
Spring2ACTion will be an important effort to raise needed funds to support your programs and services at a time of increased need and uncertainty. We know our community will continue to show its generosity, especially with an immediate call to action and an understanding of communal needs. ACT will keep you up to date on any new information as it relates to Spring2ACTion and as we monitor how this situation develops locally and across the country.
Many of you are making plans for your own organizations around the COVID-19 threat and we wanted to share helpful community information about this and also the 2020 Census – see the Census Corner below.
The City of Alexandria, the Alexandria Health Department, Inova Health System and the Alexandria City Public Schools will hold an online virtual information session on Thursday, March 12 from 8-9pm to provide information about the COVID-19 coronavirus.
The panelists will take questions about the COVID-19 coronavirus; how individuals can protect themselves and those around them; how government and the health care sector are preparing for additional impacts from the virus; and how businesses and nonprofit organizations can help. A recording of the session will be available after the session ends.
