As you know, organizations across the country and international governments are working to address the significant public health challenges presented by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The safety and well-being of our entire community is a top priority to the EWB-USA Tri-cities Professional chapter. To limit the spread of COVID-19, we decided to cancell all in-person meetings and activities. All chapter meetings have moved online.
Please note the March 14 EWB Adventure Game fundraiser has been postponed to a later date. We will update all the stakeholders on any news we receive.
You may be wondering how COVID-19 have impacted our plans to travel to Peru this Spring. EWB Tri-cities chapter wishes to protect local and international community partners from the impacts of COVID-19. As of March 17 ( see link from U.S. Embassy in Peru https://pe.usembassy.gov/covid-19-information/), an international travel ban has been officially declared by Peruvian Government during our dates of travel, and we will not be able to travel for our project assessment and terrain study as scheduled for the end of April. The team has developed contingency plans for alternate travel dates and project teams are meeting virtually to continue project progress. We will keep updating this page as new information is made available.
