Special to Iredell Free News
Iredell County Health Department officials have decided to postpone the Thyroid Cancer & Structural Coal Ash Facilities Community Meeting scheduled for March 19 at South Iredell High School.
“The health and safety of our participants, speakers, staff, and community are our top priorities” officials said in a news release. “Due to mass gathering and large community events recommendations by the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services and speaker travel restrictions related to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), many of our experts and key presenters will be unable to attend.”
The speakers expressed concern that their presentations would be less effective for such an important subject matter on a virtual platform, according to the news release.
The Community Meeting will be rescheduled when possible based on the COVID-19 activity in North Carolina.
Participants’ questions that were submitted through a survey prior to the meeting will be answered by our experts and made available on the health department’s website in the near future. People who signed up for this event through Eventbrite should have been notified by email the event is postponed.
