Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Pandemic Updates
Dear Citizens of Hudson County & Abroad,
As you know, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is currently spreading across the United States at alarming rates. Over the past week, the country and the way we are accustomed to functioning have changed drastically. COVID-19 has affected the way businesses are operating. Schools across New Jersey are closing, and events are being postponed or canceled. Further, a State of Emergency has been declared in New Jersey, and large gatherings have been banned. Accordingly, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Rho Kappa Omega Chapter, has decided to postpone all programs and events through at least March 31, 2020, including "Strike Out Against Bowling" fundraiser and "Secure The Bag Financial Literacy Workshop". These events will be rescheduled at a later date.
Our highest priority is taking great care of the communities we serve, including the health, safety, and well-being of our sorority members, community partners, supporters and residents of Hudson County. We will continue to monitor and follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health officials. We will post updates affecting Hudson County here on our website. However, if you need further information or resources regarding COVID-19, please visit CDC’s website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html.
We ask and encourage ALL to please take the necessary precautions to protect yourselves and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hudson County community. We are faithful that we will emerge from this pandemic stronger, wiser and more resilient than ever.
Yours In Service,
Sobandé F. Afolabi
