Coronovirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Update 3-30-2020

 

Begining Tuesday, March 31, The ALOHA Center will be closed.  Governor Ducey has issued an executive order urging Arizonans to stay home except for essential business, so we are complying with this order. This temporary closure saddens us and we very much want to support our members, their families, and all those meeting the challenges of hearing loss during these challenging times. To that end, we are testing a video teleconferencing platform that seems like one viable option for holding virtual Peer Discussion Groups.  If you are interested in participating in one of our test meetings, please email Pat: info@alohaaz.org.  A few members joined us last week, and their feedback was very positive.  Anyone with a PC, Mac, tablet or smart phone can join these meetings without being a techno whiz - it's a wonderful way to reconnect with your friends at ALOHA.

For current and local information about the virus, we encourage you to visit  

Pima County Health Department's Coronavirus information page.


Thank you for your understanding.
