As the situation regarding COVID-19 develops, we have continued to have conversations with our trusted officials, and we've monitored the responses of other organizations. Given the current pace of development and our desire to allow our members to plan accordingly, we have decided to cancel our Colt Cadets March camp. We know that many of you will be disappointed to miss camp that you have worked so hard for, however, we believe that this is the responsible decision during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In regards to our April camp, we will continue to monitor the situation and provide more information in the future. Until then, please practice basic everyday disease prevention measures like frequent hand washing, staying home when sick and covering coughs and sneezes. Please stay home from the April camp if you're feeling ill at that time.
The health and safety of everyone involved in the Colts and Colt Cadets is of utmost importance. Since healthcare understanding about this new disease and how to prevent it and treat it changes rapidly, the uncertainty can be upsetting. We want you to be as informed, ready and safe as possible, knowing that rumors and misinformation can contribute to the worry of some. Don’t allow fear of what we don’t know to overwhelm what we do know.
For reliable information, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website has up-to-date and factual information and advice, with updates added daily. Likewise, the World Health Organization (WHO) is a trusted source for information, especially the worldwide picture. WHO has a page devoted to dispelling unfounded rumors.
