LOWA Encourages all member to register to receive their vaccination.
Although many of our members have received the COVID-19 vaccine, LOWA continues to enforce the state mandated guidelines for indoor /outdoor gatherings, mask wearing and social distancing. We anticipate that these restrictions will likely be lessened as more people are vaccinated and the percent positivity continues to drop throughout the state. In the meantime, we ask members to be patient and respectful to the staff who are obligated to enforce these restrictions.
