The Hampton Roads Bird Club membership is encouraged to receive vaccinations and boosters related to COVID. The club suggests everyone use caution to safeguard against potential exposure to COVID by practicing distancing, wearing masks and other established protocols for avoiding pathogen exposure.  All members are encouraged to wear masks when inside at meetings and limit unknown

persons when carpooling. Most importantly any individuals feeling ill, with a fever, or any typical flu or cold-like symptoms should NOT attend meetings, field trips, or Sunday morning walks. It is up to all members to be mindful of the health of others by staying home when appropriate, and to employ their own precautions.
