Revised March 15, 2021

We know many NISE Network partners have canceled public events and temporarily closed facilities in order to slow the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19 and protect your communities. At this time, we want you to know that the safety of your staff, volunteers, and public audiences is of the utmost importance to all of us in the NISE Network.  Our thoughts are with those affected by the coronavirus across the globe, and we hope that all of you are staying healthy, safe, and informed about the latest changes.
