We know that it can be frustrating that some of our classes and services are still being offered virtually only. While we recognize the benefit of in person events and learning opportunities, as a health system, our highest priority is making sure our patients and our staff are safe. This is especially true for our most vulnerable populations, including those too young to be vaccinated and pregnant persons. With a high rate of both community spread and COVID-19 hospitalizations, we must continue our heightened infection prevention practices for the foreseeable future. We appreciate your patience and look forward to welcoming back in-person offerings when the time is right.
