*2020 Annual Meeting Postponed*

The 2020 Louisiana Healthy Communities Coalition Annual (LHCC) Meeting, scheduled for March 31 and April 1, 2020 in Hammond, Louisiana will be cancelled for those dates and postponed for a later date.  Also, if you have made hotel or other travel reservations for the meeting on those dates, please cancel them so you do not incur charges.  The planning committee will arrange for new, tentative dates for the annual meeting.  We will then notify the public when we feel confident in those dates, and that the public will not be at risk.

In an effort to reduce further viral transmission, I also strongly recommend that local coalitions virtually host meetings.  Other recommended measures include cancelling or postponing local meetings or gatherings until the governor removes the declaration of a state of emergency.  In the meantime, schedule phone and webinar meetings if possible.  Social distancing is currently one recommended strategy for reducing transmission. 

Stay Healthy,

Louisiana Healthy Communities Coalition, Chair
