UPDATE: Philadelphia Jugglers Club meetings continue to be canceled despite the limited reopening of Lloyd Hall. Philadelphia Parks & Recreation has a new policy requiring a 30-minute gap between between groups using the facility in order to allow time to sanitize the space. Before COVID-19, the Monday evening time slots were 6-8pm (used by basketball players) and our 8-10pm time slot. With the new gap rule (combined with an earlier closing time), the time slots are all different, and the final time slot each weekday is 6:30-8:30pm. Unfortunately, that means there are more groups requesting time slots than there are slots available.

For those of us who work a day job, and would only be able to attend an evening meeting, one of the previous 10 Mon-Fri evening slots (either 6-8pm or 8-10pm) would have been acceptable. But now there are only 5 Mon-Fri evening slots (6:30-8:30pm), and no current availability in their schedule. They will let us know if a slot becomes available in the future.

It's unclear when things will go back to normal, but obviously the rise of the delta variant, and the large number of unvaccinated people, continue to prevent us from reaching herd immunity and a return to normalcy. Please be a responsible member of society. Stop politicizing the COVID-19 mitigation efforts, and do your part to stop the spread: get vaccinated.
