Due to the rapidly escalating threat posed by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the board has taken the unprecedented step of cancelling all club meetings, workshops, activities (including Darkroom and Studio usage) and get-togethers until 30 April 2020. Access to the building will be disabled effective immediately.
This action was based upon advice from VAPS (Victorian Association of Photographic Societies), which in turn is based upon advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Federal Department of Health and the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. Whilst we understand that many members will be disappointed, we felt that the demographic of the club is such that many of our members are in higher risk categories for this disease. In the meantime we ask that our members continue to participate/view the various Facebook groups, MCC website and we will consider additional means of participation that don’t involve face-to-face meetings.
Thank you for your understanding, and most importantly, please take every precaution over the coming days and weeks to protect yourselves and your loved ones.
Your MCC Board
