Masking: There are members of our community who are particularly vulnerable to COVID. We do not want to put these members of our community at risk. Therefore, the CAP team will continue to wear masks at our events going forward, and we make a heartfelt request that you also continue to wear a mask. We will have meals for you to take away with you after the talk.
