Re: 173d Airborne Brigade Association and COVID-19
At this time, the 173d Airborne Brigade Association Reunion is taking place as scheduled, June 3-7, 2020 at the Crowne Plaza in Dayton, OH.

The City of Dayton has not issued a public health order that places restrictions due to the COVID-19 coronavirus on Conferences of our size from taking place. We have consulted with the Dayton County Public Health Department, which is following the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) advisories on public gatherings. At this time, the CDC does not have a specific advisory for Conferences.

We are taking all available steps to plan for a safe Reunion. These include:
•Coordinating with the Crowne Plaza, Marriott, Fairfield and the Convention Center for our conference(s) venue to protect against transmission of the virus (including implementing hand sanitizer stations and frequent cleaning of high-touch areas), and procedures in case there is a suspected or confirmed case among Conference participants or other hotel guests.

•Modified food menus for all functions to eliminate exposure to contamination
•Frequent check-ins with the state and local public health agencies, and Office of Emergency Services Should circumstances change, we will be in communication with our Conference registrants immediately and posting updates on our website.

Please do not hesitate to contact us.
173d Airborne Brigade Association takes the health and safety of our colleagues and
friends very seriously. We will continue to carefully monitor the factors and implications involved with COVID-19. We encourage you to to evaluate and address your own risk and we will respect your decision.

New website is under construction now.  Pages are being built out and old content is migrating to a new location.  More to follow as transitional links are published.  - Shipley -
