Dear members and friends of JLCC:

With the state of Texas slowly reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have important updates regarding this quickly evolving situation. As you know, the safety of our members, guests, staff, and the agencies we serve are always top of mind, and, as such, the following changes are effective immediately:

  • The JLCC Office is closed until at least Friday, July 31. Someone will be checking the mail several times per week, but otherwise, no one should visit the office until we officially reopen.
  • Our office staff will be working from home until Friday, July 31.
  • Trinkets to Treasures, in conjunction with Goodwill Industries of North East Texas, is rescheduled for July 1-15.
  • The Collin County Women of Influence Awards event is rescheduled for April 2021, where we will honor our 2020 and 2021 recipients.
  • Third party meetings in our office will not be held until further notice.
As community leaders, we ask you to take CDC, WHO, Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and local updates seriously and set the example for our neighbors. You may not be at high risk, but someone you interact with indirectly in public may live in a high-risk household. Below are some tips to protect yourself and others:

  • Frequent hand washing, social distancing and avoiding others when feeling ill are the most important actions each of us can take to stop the spread of infection.
  • Asymptomatic carriers can spread the virus easily. Just because you aren’t feeling ill doesn’t mean there is no risk.
  • Monitor the DSHS Open Texas protocols for the most up-to-date guidelines.

Thank you, in advance, for your help and leadership as we continue to monitor and adapt to this situation.

Sincerely,
Amanda Konersmann
2020-2021 President
Junior League of Collin County
