Staying Safe at VNPS Meetings
With the Covid-19 pandemic still here, it is necessary to change some of our meeting procedures so that we are following both rules from NBG and suggestions from the CDC. We will still be meeting at the Norfolk Botanical Garden on the fourth Thursday of most months. The Garden Auditorium in the Old Administration Building is limited to an attendance of 40 people. This should not be a problem for us since our attendance is seldom more than 20. The tables will be spaced out with only two chairs at each one. If your party is more than two, you can move the chairs.
NBG requires masks to be worn inside the buildings. So please bring a mask and wear it during the meeting.
We have suspended refreshments until 2021 when, hopefully, the pandemic will be over and the restrictions will be gone. Basically, the NBG green policy does not allow individual disposable bottles or food packaging. The CDC recommends not sharing food or beverages from communal plates or bottles. In other words they are conflicting. You are welcome to bring your own non- disposable beverage container.
