SCPGA Notice COVID-19
Dear PGA Colleagues:
The rapid spread and still-unknown threat of the Coronavirus and COVID-19 find us in the middle of uncertain and extraordinary times. Having considered all the available information and in following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and local/state health department officials, the Section is electing to act with an abundance of caution with three main goals driving our decisions:
- Caring for the health of our professionals, their staff and members
- Preventing the virus from infiltrating our facilities and gatherings
- Contributing to public health efforts to stem the spread of this virus throughout our golf and civic communities
In our view, these extraordinary circumstances call for extraordinary actions. Across the country announcements are being made of closures, cancellations, postponements, and other disruptions to plans and life. Each of these disruptions are bound to cause an array of frustrations, inconveniences and sacrifices, all in the name of helping to curb this public health crisis. We are fully aware that the Section’s own changes will have similar effects on our professionals and their families; we ask for your patience and understanding as we venture through this together.
As such the Section will cancel all Section, Chapter and Junior Golf events through April 17th at which time we will revisit and evaluate current circumstances. The Section will provide, at the very least, weekly updates. Your Section Headquarters Staff will begin working remotely on Monday, March 16th. All operations and services will continue as normal, and we will maintain consistent levels of service. Please stay tuned.
On behalf of your Chapter Presidents, Section Officers, Tom, Jeff, Nikki
