COVID-19 – SUSPENSION OF EVENTS

A message from APDA Oklahoma Chapter

The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) is closely monitoring Coronavirus Disease 2019 (also known as COVID-19) situation for the safety of our event attendees, volunteers and staff. As the disease can pose an increased threat for people with underlying health issues and/or advanced age, which includes many people living with Parkinson’s disease, we are ever mindful of your health and well-being.

As such, we have been evaluating our upcoming events, support groups and PRESS classes in conjunction with the recommendations and guidelines put forth by local health officials. In an abundance of caution, we will be suspending all Oklahoma Chapter events (This includes Pennies for Pearls 2020 and all Friend Raising Parties), support groups and PRESS classes beginning Friday, March 13 through Monday, May 11. We will extend that deadline if necessary. We will resume classes/groups as soon as we possibly can and apologize for any inconvenience.

We encourage our constituents to contact their group/class leader if they have questions about a specific class or event. For your own safety and the safety of others, we do recommend that anyone who is not feeling well stay home and contact your physician.

We understand the situation is extremely inconvenient and we hope that we can return to some normalcy as soon as possible. Know that we are thinking of all of you and only wish the best for you, always.
