March Luncheon CANCELED

PORTLAND, ORE. (AP) — Oregon Gov. Kate Brown declared a state of emergency on Sunday to contain the new coronavirus after the number of confirmed cases doubled to 14 from the previous day.  The Democratic governor said the declaration means the state’s reserves of emergency healthcare professionals are being activated and that she was giving broad authority to state health officials to take immediate action.  She said they would “devote all available state resources toward containing this disease.”  She said the emergency declaration will be in effect for 60 days but could be extended. The state has so far reported no deaths due to the virus.

As a result of this growing concern, especially for our seniors, the ABA board has decided to cancel this

month’s monthly meeting and resume again next month on Thursday April 9th. We don’t want to 
contribute to the number of cases here in Oregon and want the highest precautions taken for our
members.
Please pass this message along to others who may or may not have been added to our members email listing. We appreciate your consideration in this important safety issue.
Sally Fabre – President of the ABA
