MRR’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

(updated 3/30/20)

We are living in unprecedented times.  We want you to know that Missouri River Relief is working diligently to give thoughtful consideration about how our decisions will impact our program opportunities and keep families safe across our region. 

MRR supports the practice of social distancing, or limiting personal contact and increasing personal space, as a means to slow community spread of this novel virus and lessen the impact on our health care resources and workers.  These upcoming weeks are the time during which this strategy can make the most effective difference to slow the spread of the virus.

The federal government issued guidelines on Sunday, March 29, limiting gatherings of 10 or more people until April 30. We have cancelled all public events until May and are constantly evaluating the likelihood of being able to host events in May and beyond. The safety of our staff, participants and community will be the guide for our decisions. 

We are evaluating our programs and meetings on a case-by-case basis and will publish any cancellations, postponements or other important announcements below on this page (and in the sidebar on the right) and on our Facebook page
