ONYX Lone Star Statement Regarding COVID-19
As we and the nation grapple with the impact of COVID-19, I want to share with your ONYX Lone Star's (OLS) commitment to the health and safety or our members, community, and friends. The OLS Board continues monitoring developments and news as it becomes available.
Here is what we know. Governor Abbott, of Texas, declared a state of emergency on Friday, March 13. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Texas Department of State and Health Services have recommended not gatherings of more than 50 people. Today, President Trump recommended they we avoid bars and restaurants as well as no gatherings of more than 10 people. Starting tomorrow March 17 @ 8 am, Harris County officials have mandated the closure of all bars, clubs, and restaurants (excluding pickup, drive-thru, and delivery services) for the next 15 days. Sheltering in place has been recommended.
At OLS, we believe it is our role and responsibility during this time to prioritize two things: the health and well-being of our community while also playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus. At this time, out of an abundance of caution, OLS has decided to cancel our next bar nite weekends (Houston March 20-22. Our pledge process will continue to move forward; however, with modifications until further notice.
I wanted to personally reach out to you and provide an update on the actions that OLS is taking during this unprecedented time. We appreciate your understanding that, as a supporter of OLS, our presence in the community may look different as we navigate through this time together. Stay safe, take care of yourself, and check on a neighbor friend or coworker. If you have additional questions please contact us.
In addition to your local public health officials and local authorities, be sure to follow the: World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for up to date news and guidance.
Thank you for being a loyal supporter. We are privileged to serve our community and look forward to seeing you soon.
President, ONYX Lone Star
