Triangle Club: reopening status update:
To our Triangle Club community,
As you’re aware, the District of Columbia is in Stage 1 of reopening with respect to COVID-19, and assessment for Stage 2 is underway. The Board has closely reviewed the ReOpen DC guidance for each of the four stages (max size of gatherings, max capacity constraints, continued social distancing, elevated hygiene practices, etc.) to determine when the clubhouse could potentially reopen and what steps we would need to take to do so safely. Based on this review, the Board has determined the clubhouse will not be able to reopen during Stage 1 or Stage 2. This decision is in line with what similar organizations are choosing to do, opting toward an abundance of caution rather than opening too quickly and risking the health of the community.
For LGBTQIA meetings normally held at other locations (churches, recovery houses) we advise you to connect with your host venue to discuss when and how return may be feasible. The Board has updated the shared googlesheet of our community’s meetings (access via link or Facebook) with a column for meetings to indicate if/when/how they will start gathering again in person. All Triangle Club meetings have been marked “virtual only” given the clubhouse remains closed.
The Board will continue to monitor ReOpen DC guidance, and is committed to opening as soon as it is safe to do so. At that time, we will provide instructions on both how meetings can make the decision to return, and what protocols must be followed to do so. In the meantime we are greatly encouraged by the strength of our community shining through in Zoom meetings and other creative solutions that support our entire fellowship.
We will keep you updated as the situation develops and we welcome your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in unity, recovery, and service
Your Triangle Club Board
