Dear Members and Friends,

Due to concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Ethical Culture Society of Westchester Board moved to cancel all gatherings at the Ethical Society until at least the end of March. The Society has opened a Zoom account and will be meeting via that platform for at least the next three weeks.

ECSW’s plan for this Sunday is a presentation and discussion of the coronavirus and its impact on the community and vulnerable individuals. You’re invited to join via a scheduled Zoom meeting. Please see the details below.

Contending with the Coronavirus – Presentation and Discussion – Sunday, March 15, 2020, at 10:30 a.m. (ET)

You can email Leader Bart Worden ( to learn how to join the meeting or with questions or concerns.

Please stay safe and take the following precautions:

– Clean your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
– If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
– Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
– Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
– Throw used tissues in the trash.
– If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people
– If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask).
– Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
