Our Executive Committee is in continual conversations with Region 15 regarding the reopening of Knox in the midst of COVID-19. At this time the building will remain closed until September 13th. This will allow us to have the building professionally cleaned and to have planned renovations in the office area complete.
In the meantime, anyone accessing the building is required to adhere to all policies currently put in place. We now have log books located at each entrance, and require all to sign in with contact information to follow COVID 19 precautionary process.
