Seriously, how many blogs and emails have you received so far with this same subject line about how so-and-so is dealing with COVID-19 and how it will affect you? Well, we thought we’d join the bandwagon because COVID-19 is such a hot topic right now.
First and foremost, Lacuna Loft’s online programming is the perfect escape to the stress induced by COVID-19! You can still take part in 99.9% of our programs from the comfort of your own home with your hand sanitizer close by. Second of all, over a month ago, we packed and sealed the creative workshop packages that will be used in the next few months (before most of the spread of the virus in the US). They are ready to be mailed when sign-ups are finalized. All of that is great news for our community as we all seek to stay as safe and as healthy as possible in the coming months.
Lacuna Loft’s outreach remains the single program directly affected by the virus at this time. Young Survival Coalition recently postponed their Summit in Los Angeles, CA so we are anxiously awaiting their new dates and will do our very best to be at the conference at its rescheduled time. The American Psychosocial Oncology Society canceled their annual conference that was to be in Portland, OR this week. We are waiting to see if the other events we are due to attend this year will happen as scheduled and will update you all as we receive more information.
In the meantime, stay updated with what the CDC has to say about COVID-19 and check out their handwashing recommendations. Dr. Anne Katz, our resident Awkward Auntie, recently posted on twitter about how relaxing and indulgent handwashing can be with the right mindset and we are taking that to heart!
