TNC Connecticut COVID-19 Response
A message to supporters regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
New Haven, CT
Dear Nature Conservancy Supporters:
Like you, we’ve been paying close attention to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In listening to guidance from public health experts, we are taking proactive steps to ensure the safety of our members, volunteers, staff, and partners.
As of March 16, 2020, all staff will work remotely until further notice. We’ll still be reachable during regular business hours, but we ask for your patience as we adjust to our new format.
For the same reasons, we’re re-evaluating volunteer participation in our programs. We are grateful for your volunteer support, and if you are scheduled to work with us, we will be in touch individually.
What’s not changing? Our promise to protect and preserve Connecticut. Our preserves will remain open to the public as usual. We have no reason to believe there is an elevated risk of exposure outdoors. Accordingly, critical stewardship of our lands will continue. Follow us on social media for updates.
We also encourage everyone to stay vigilant and do their part to help stop the spread of the virus. Please follow guidance from the CDC, The State of Connecticut, and your local health department.
