Contingency Plans & COVID-19

Updated Position of Story Crossroads (12/23/2020):

We value everyone’s health and, as the Story Crossroads Board, we constantly monitor the COVID-19 situation.  As a result, we have made some adaptations. We have virtual options as well as limited-sized events with required mask-wearing and sanitation measures only. Outdoors is preferred and encouraged, even in winter.

The CDC has given us guidance and you can find more here: (has been updated 12/16/2020)
