HSN COVID policy:
Our HSN Board has discussed at length the concern among members over gathering in groups due to the pandemic. In consideration of that apprehension, our HSN Board recommends that for any type of gathering, our membership will follow the guidelines set forth by the host of the gathering be that the venue or an individual. Each member will have to decide whether or not to participate based on the guidelines set. These are difficult times and we will navigate them with flexibility, innovation, creativity and respect for all.
