As local authorities allowed for slow reopening, we thought it was too early to reopen until we have a clear picture of COVID-19 cases in a downward trend here in town and throughout the country.
For weeks, the board has been monitoring the situation frequently with a goal of phased opening to previous trends. Today, cases are on the rise again in Eau Claire county as well as in multiple areas of the country. Given this situation, it was decided to hold on to reopening and wait until it is safe.
We understand the frustration of our community members. Our priority is to keep the community safe. Therefore, we ask for your patience in this time of trial. We seek Allah’s guidance and mercy, always.
We also want to take this opportunity to remind you to stay vigilant and continue preventive measures from CDC such as:
- Social distancing
- Wearing a facial mask in public
- Restricting public gatherings
- Avoiding non-essential travel or social visits
We will continue to maintain frequent communication with community members as the situation progresses. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email us.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
