Over the last several months, we have been facing a great deal of stress and anxiety as we work through the challenges and uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. PFLAG HoCo has worked to maintain connection with you through virtual gatherings, newsletters, social media, etc. I wanted to provide an update on PFLAG Columbia-Howard County’s ability to return to having meetings in person. We are communicating with the staff of Owen Brown Interfaith Center (OBIC) and monitoring the situation closely to stay up to date on the status. At present, we are still not permitted to have meetings at OBIC. Soon, we expect OBIC resume gatherings for religious/worship services, as outlined in the latest Howard County Executive Order. However, all other gatherings (non-worship) are still under strict restrictions by the State and Howard County.
