Milwaukee Area Woodturners Health and Safety Policy on Covid19:
Approved by the MAWT Board – June 2020
Although Stay-at-Home orders have now ceased and businesses are opening, the possibility of holding a regular meeting in Woodcraft at this time is still not acceptable. As noted in May, the Board is reviewing this situation on a monthly “wait and see” basis but the health and safety of club members is our primary concern.
When the situation improves, the Board will then decide to restore regular meetings and we will comply with the current guidelines. But even with these protections, many members will still be reluctant to come to a meeting in person and we completely understand that.
Fortunately we are able to produce live streaming demos from Woodcraft with club members providing demonstrations. This allows members to enjoy an interactive remote demonstration within the safety of their homes. We will continue this into the future as needed. We will also provide additional demonstrations from national presenters, as we did with the Mike Mahoney demo earlier in May.
We are in uncharted waters here and willing or not, we are all along for the ride. We sincerely hope that this health crisis will be behind us and we can all get back together soon. Thank you for your understanding. The MAWT Board wishes good health to all members, their families and friends.
