It has come to our attention that a person who attended the UPC meeting on Thursday, 1/14/21 was exposed to a person who was previously exposed to another person who has tested positive for Covid-19.
The UPC Covid Advisory Protocol was successfully put into place on 1/16. And thanks to Jean and our sign up crew (Darry) we were able to notify all those who signed in for the 1/14 session.
The advisory is over as the member who reported the exposure has since tested negative. Thank you all for your cooperation In this matter.
UPC NOTE: If for any reason a UPC session is CANCELLED or NOT SCHEDULED we will put the info on the WEB PAGE. For those of you who are not informed of the cancellation, or just decide to go anyway:

Strum With Us
Playing the ukulele is one of the fastest growing crazes not only in The Villages but in the country. On January 30, 2020, we moved to our new location: Everglades Rec Center. Singers come to the mic to sing but everyone plays as music is shown on the screen for all to see. No need to worry about hitting a wrong note: with so many ukuleles no one will know. Besides, how many balls did Tiger hit before he won a tournament? Come wearing a frown and leave wearing a smile.
See you Thursday at Everglades Rec Center.
