Please read our COVID-19 precautions below

     Our chapter was forced to cancel a number of meetings in 2020, and again in 2021, due to conditions and restrictions forced upon us by the COVID-19 pandemic. There are even variants of Covid-19 up until now which could potentially affect even those of us who have been vaccinated.  Governor McMaster and SCDHEC have provided COVID-19 guidance to all South Carolinians regarding restrictions during the pandemic.  EAA has also provided guidance to EAA chapters. Click here to view that EAA guidance. Fortunately, the governor's orders have NOT been overly restrictive thus far. Most SC businesses and organizations can now open/operate as long as certain PRECAUTIONS are taken. Consequently, we will do our best to abide by those precautions. SCDHEC has published a simplified list of recommended precautions on their website. Click here to view those SCDHEC guidelines. Those guidelines are constantly changing, so please keep abreast of them. As you know, COVID-19 is still with us and a very serious disease, so your attendance at this meeting is ENTIRELY VOLUNTARY. If you are fearful of catching the virus, then we'll understand if you decide not to come. If you are sick in any way, we request that you please DO NOT COME. If you have have had any variant of Covid-19 recently, or if you have any type of underlying health condition(s), we suggest that you consider whether or not you really should come. With the possible exception of the new Omicron variant, vulnerablity of those of us vaccinated has lessened substantially. So, if you are tired of being stuck at home, this is an excellent opportunity to get out and socialize with your like-minded aviation friends. Also, it's very important to practice SOCIAL DISTANCING and to WASH YOUR HANDS often. Those safety measures are intended as much, if not moreso, for the protection of others as for yourself. At least 6 feet is the recommended social distance between individuals. Thank you all for for your cooperation and understanding of our predicament during these challenging times. It's the only way we can reasonably and safely resume our chapter activities. State and local regulations are constantly changing, so if there are further restrictions, we may have to curtail our chapter meetings.

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
