In this time of COVID-19, please know that for all in-person meetings there is enough space to stay physically distanced (2m apart), and that all of the high-touch surfaces in the office are being extra cleaned.

I ask that you don't attend any in-person sessions if you are feeling unwell, and I will do the same. Thanks!
