This is a time of uncertainty for the Northshore community as we navigate the COVID-19 outbreak. While government and public health agencies are not recommending full quarantine at this time, it leaves it up to your PTA board to determine what the best course of action is for your PTA with regards to events, services and communications. There is no one right answer-- but we have put together a list of resources, information and considerations to help your board as you work together to make decisions about how to best serve your community and goals.
