Burney is a small town in the foothills of the Cascades and 55 miles away from Redding. We consider ourselves to be somewhat isolated from the infectious Coronavirus, particular since there have been no confirmed cases in the Northstate as of March 19th.
Yet, people travel to and through our area every day. They are potential unknowing carriers of the virus. Additionally, most of our Post members are over the age of 65 and that's been proven to be where most of the fatalities are happening. Many of us are essentially "stay-at-home" types who are not out in public frequently where we are exposed to bugs and so our bodies don't build up a natural resistance to them.
For these reasons, it is in our best interests to follow the guidelines being established by federal, state and county health directives.
This is also a good time for us to keep in touch with each other by phone and Internet.
As of this date, no firm decision has been made as to Executive Committee or General Membership meetings. Check back for further developments and be in good health and spirits during this time.
