Taking Precautions Against Coronavirus (COVID-19)

March 6th, 2020

The Watershed Institute is closely monitoring reports and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), state health agencies, and other public health organizations about the public health threat caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19).

We have made a decision to cancel or postpone most programs and meetings at the Watershed for the next two weeks to protect the health and safety of our visitors and staff. Please check our website regularly for updates.

Postponed Events:
Healthy Yard Workshop on March 12
Roundtable with Elected Officials on March 13

Canceled Events:
Preschool, Homeschool & Toddler Classes on March 17 & 24
World Water Day on March 21

If you are scheduled for a program and are not sure if it has been canceled, please call Education Manager, Tammy Love at 609-737-3735 ex. 42. If you have signed up for a program that is not canceled, but no longer wish to attend, please call Tammy for a refund.

We are implementing an aggressive disinfectant regime to ensure the safety of our staff and visitors but ask that people who have traveled by mass transit – subway, bus, airplane, boat, cruise ships, trains – or who have visited a large metropolis in the last two weeks to refrain from visiting The Watershed Institute for the time being in an effort to limit any spread of the virus. Likewise, we are asking the same of people who have recently attended conferences and other large gatherings.

We ask the same of anyone who is showing flu-like symptoms—cough, fever, sore throat or shortness of breath–or believes they may have come into contact with anyone exhibiting such symptoms. These prohibitions apply to groups that rent our facilities and meeting rooms.

We are encouraging our staff and visitors to the Watershed Center to review and follow the recommendations of the CDC for everyday precautions to reduce the spread of respiratory disease. Here is another CDC link to information on the virus.

Our hearts go out to the people who have been infected and to communities that have been disrupted by this outbreak.
