The Orange County Hispanic Bar Association has been monitoring the status of the COVID-19 situation, including the most recent labeling of the rapidly spreading outbreak a global pandemic by the World Health Organization on Wednesday, and the health advisory issued by Governor Newsom on Thursday regarding “social distancing” measures.
After thoughtful deliberations, the OC HBA Board of Directors, has made the difficult, but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 MCLE travel seminar to Nuevo Vallarta due to the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak. For anybody that has signed up for the travel seminar, please check your email for more information regarding the cancellation. This decision was difficult to make, but we believe it was necessary given the seriousness of this outbreak and in consideration of the health and safety of our members, their families, and the community in general.
With respect to our upcoming events, we will continue to monitor developments of this outbreak and we will provide an announcement regarding the status of those events after the board of directors meets on March 18, 2020.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times. Please stay safe and healthy.
2020 OCHBA President
