Special Covid-19 Mission Guidelines:
Updated 8 March 2022
Based on the most current COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines: Protect Yourself and Your Family from COVID-19, and CDC Guidelines of 3 March 2022, going forward, the Lead Ride Captain for any mission will be responsible for determining whether PGR members will have to mask up or not. Please ensure that you have a mask with you, should the need arise, and respect the LRC’s decision in these matters.
Please park in the parking lot behind the school or in the excess parking lot. We then must walk to the front of the school to the auditorium, to the right of the main entrance. We will form and stand a flagline for the duration of the ceremonies. After the ceremony, we will be escorting the trailer to Marcy Walmart Distribution Center for the second stage of this mission.
Since we are unsure if masks are necessary for this mission, please be sure to have one on hand.
