Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, we are exercising
an abundance of caution for the well-being of our support group members.
As such, we are canceling all scheduled support group meetings for the
foreseeable future. Having said this, some support groups are holding
virtual meetings in place of their canceled meetings.
Please take care of yourself. We suggest that you
follow the precautions recommended by your local health agencies and the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
ThyCa Long Island holds FREE virtual meetings as shown in the calendar below, at our regular time, 1:00 to 3:00 PM Eastern Time. Members of our group or others are welcome.
