Good afternoon everyone,
I hope this finds you and yours as well as can be this week. x
After quite a lot of reading about the coronavirus, it looks like the most helpful thing for Oxhack to do right now is to cancel our regular weekly social night for the next several weeks—at least in its physical form.
Even if many of our members are on the younger and fitter side, they are not all so, and many are also caring for ageing parents or family members with asthma. In addition, we have a responsibility to do our part in protecting the rest of society, the older, the immunosuppressed and the vulnerable by flattening the spread curve of the virus as much as we can in the early stages. This will help give the NHS the time and space to properly help those who need it as this virus comes through—and it will also help keep more of us fit to help our neighbours if needed.
This will be the first time since 2012 that we will not have a regular social night for a bit. 😌 Please enjoy the extra project time and we look forward to seeing your coronabuilds when things return to normal 😉.
Stay safe, enjoy the sun, and don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you need support yourself or help supporting others.
