CURRENT EVENTS-2020

Effective March 16, 2020... As we continue to adapt to the rapid changes related to COVID-19, we have decided to take the necessary precautions to keep ourselves and those around us safe. The Men's Cancer Network, Inc. is taking action to protect the community by cancelling and postponing all community events, classes, and activities until further notice. As we continue to monitor the changes, we will still be available via phone and email to assist our members and partners.  We encourage everyone to continue taking steps to remain safe such as:

  • washing hands regularly with soap and hot water 
  • staying indoors unless necessary 
  • if you are feeling any flu or cold symptoms, stay home 
  • avoid activities that involve large crowds
  • sneeze and cough into your arm, and wash hands after blowing nose
  • wear a face mask if you are sick
  • use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
  • avoid touching face with unwashed hands
  • disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched 

We believe these precautions will help decrease the risk of spreading Covid-19.
