March 12, 2020
COC Haaglanden has decided to discontinue its activities immediately until May 20, 2020 due to the corona virus. Within COC Haaglanden many vulnerable people are attending our activities and we do want to take any risk. In concrete terms, this means that all planned activities, such as the COC Café, Transcafé, Philautia, Jong & Out, Autiroze, Weksenketel, Vox Rosa, the Dinners, HIV Lunch, Orpheus, Zilveruitjes, , Education, GSA etc are cancelled. This applies to both COC Haaglanden’s own activities and LGBTI associations that use our building.
Social work will continue as normal. It would too socially too impactful to temporarily put these activities on hold.
We are aware that this is an intensive measure and has an impact on our LGBTI community. If people experience any problems, for example due to loneliness or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact our social work at firstname.lastname@example.org or via 070 3 6 44 888. Tika Stardust, one of our social workers, can be contacted on email@example.com or via mobile number 06 2198 5017. You can leave your telephone number on which we can reach you.
When we receive instructions from RIVM that other and / or additional measures must be taken, we will inform everyone of this. For more information, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of the Board,
Peter Paul Wiegmans
Secretary COC Haaglanden
