Per the just-announced statewide mask mandate, we will require masks (City of Beaverton announced our mask mandate maybe a week ago?). I'm also doing registration for in-person so that people know what the expectations are. Added bonus for registration: can easily contact them in case we need to cancel.

However, I can't imagine that we'll require proof of vaccination.

And I hear you, Mark. Virtual programs with teens has been especially tough.

My current thinking is to plan for virtual but state that we will transition to in person or hybrid if things get better. General craft programs or game programs can be done either way in my mind. Things that don't require a lot of prep and can be changed quickly are where I'm leaning.

I'd like to get teen council in person.  That's my top goal at the moment.

I'm curious, those doing in person, are you requiring proof of vaccination?  masks? registrations?

Tempted to try some things outside but we don't have a great spot for it and..you know... the weather.

Sigh, it's been really hard to deal with this frankly.  It's exhausting.  I really don't want to do virtual.

We are hesitating at the moment, but I'd love to know of others who considering in-person.

Hi Everyone,

Are you doing in person programs this fall? I'm struggling to decide. Teens can be vaccinated and with the mask mandate, I feel like it's comparable to school. I just want to know what you are thinking!
