Statement on COVID-19

Due to SARS CoV-2 pandemic, PCAA has chosen to remain closed to in-person meetings, groups, and services for the foreseeable future. We do not currently have a timeline of when we will resume these things. Our community, the Disabled community, is at particular risk of serious illness and death due to this virus. We are the people who are most impacted, as a community and as individuals, by the pandemic. The Disabled community is being put at risk. We refuse to take part in endangering our community. We care about all of you. We hope that you are as well as you can be, and safe. We miss seeing you. Know that this is not forever. Things will be different. We will see one another again.
