Clubhouse Temporary Closing

Libby Utter March 12, 2020

Announcement – March 12, 2020

Knowing that the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the Coronavirus a global pandemic today (March 12, 2020), and that some of the members we serve are already struggling with compromised immune systems, we at Gilda’s Club Twin Cities have elected to temporarily cease in-person programming in our Clubhouse effective March 13, 2020.

We would rather ensure that our members, team, and community remain healthy and that proactively ceasing in-person programming in the Clubhouse allows us to contribute to this greater containment effort. We will be providing virtual support services for our support groups and select educational offerings.  Members will receive a separate email with instructions for accessing our virtual support offerings.

We will keep you posted on when the Clubhouse will reopen for programming with our goal being Monday, March 30th should that be in adherence to any advisory or restrictions from the CDC, Federal and/or State governments.  We will also be delaying the release of our April through June calendar until we have more clarity around reopening the Clubhouse.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

For those needing additional support visit the Cancer Support Helpline for over-the-phone, one-on-one support and resources at 1-888-793-9355.

Be well!
