The White House has recently changed guidelines to no more than 10 people gathered together through the end of March. In the U.S., Young Life is following the same guidelines – please keep groups below ten, and practice handwashing, etc., as you’re together.
Temporary restrictions, effective 3/15/2020
In a message to all Young Life staff, President Newt Crenshaw has announced the following temporary measures:
Beginning Sunday, March 15 through Friday, April 3, 2020, the following restrictions will be in place:
Young Life business travel will be canceled or postponed.
All clubs in the U.S. are canceled.
Also in the U.S. we will not hold any large group gatherings (defined as 10 people or more unless local restrictions further limit group size).
As we continue to monitor the nature of this outbreak, we will determine whether and how long to extend these restrictions and whether there are other steps we can take in the interest of those in our community and public health in general.
In the meantime, our staff and volunteers will look for opportunities to remain in communication with the young people we serve, whether via social media or in small group settings (in accordance with guidance from local health officials, common sense and parents’ wishes).
