    Default In person happy hour canceled

    I am sorry to announce that the in-person happy hour has had to be canceled. Cases of COVID in DC have risen 252% in the past two weeks, and are now at a higher level than at any previous time in the pandemic. And that's even before Omicron has arrived here in any great numbers. And even with boosters, the vaccine is only about 70% effective against Omicron. We didn't feel it was responsible to hold a potential superspreader event.

    A Zoom event will be announced in the near future.

    I hate this, but I think it's the right call.

    I think you're doing the right thing fwiw.

    Thank you for making the tough call.

    My risk tolerance is fairly high but I would have skipped this one.

    I'm still doing my happy hour raffle, but made some changes to the rules since we're not doing an in-person happy hour.

    Itís always a bummer to have to make a call like this but I also think itís the right call. With the spike in cases I was planning on skipping happy hour and am now avoiding most in person interactions.
