BELMONT, Mass.—In line with the recommendations of public health and medical experts relating to the coronavirus, the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) has made the difficult decision to postpone all public events through the end of April 2020. The health and safety of the entire community are primary concerns. Every effort will be made to reschedule the many events affected by this decision. In due course, NAASR will announce plans regarding events in May and beyond.
Similarly, the NAASR Vartan Gregorian Building, 395 Concord Ave., Belmont, MA 02478, will be closed to the public until the end of April, at which time the situation will be reassessed.
Both the events that I was to attend tomorrow (a diabetes seminar and a Russian meetup) got cancelled, but my interpretation sessions are still on. However, I got turned away from something today due to a cough.
As I’ve said a number of times, this is the month that the world went full “Contagion”.
