A Note on COVID-19

From the RLACEI Board:

Amid the uncertainty from day to day and the apprehension of receiving updates daily, hourly and even minute by minute concerning the outbreak of the worldwide pandemic known as coronavirus (COVID-19), please know that the RLACEI Board wishes all its members to stay safe and to stay healthy.

Keep your spirit strong and your mind calm.
