CCA Updates in Light of COVID-19

Updated 3/16: Responses to the COVID-19 virus are fluid; for a constantly-updated list of postponements and cancelations of events that may be of interest to CCA members, please refer back to this post.

Out of an abundance of caution and in light of Governor Newsom’s directive that large gatherings ought to be postponed or canceled to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus (including all gatherings of ten or more high-risk individuals), CCA has elected to postpone the Annual Steak & Eggs Breakfast, originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 25 at the Sutter Club.

Circumstances permitting, CCA will re-schedule the event for a later date, likely in late summer or early fall. Stay tuned for future announcements regarding a re-scheduled event.

Meanwhile, the CCA office will remain open for the foreseeable future to serve our members’ needs; please continue to reach out to staff with any policy issues or to order your selenium boluses or anaplasmosis vaccines. (Rest assured, though, that CCA staff is implementing CDC guidance and Governor Newsom’s directives—including social distancing protocols—to ensure the health and safety of staff).

To ensure members’ health, however, CCA staff is temporarily halting travel to events and in-person meetings (instead implementing tele-meetings) in order to promote safe social distancing.
