CORONAVIRUS (Covid-19) (Updated 03/23/2020)

We wanted to inform you that we have been monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Thoughtful evaluation of the well being of those planning on attending the Toxic Exposure Town Hall has been our primary concern as this global issue unfolds into our local communities, especially Milwaukee.

With an abundance of caution we have decided to postpone the Town Hall Meeting to a date November 14, 2020, based on local recommendations and coordination with the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center.

Your understanding is greatly appreciated and feel free to gather information on the Wisconsin State Council's website, and for additional information on this health situation from the WHO (World Health Organization), the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) or your local Health Department.

Sincerely,

James E. Mullarkey (Army, 65-68)
