Conroe Art League
127 Simonton St, Conroe,
Tuesday thru Thursday and Saturday:
CLOSED SUNDAY and MONDAY
The news surrounding the spread of the Coronavirus has been moving fast. The Conroe Art League Executive Board has been monitoring developments and taking steps in accordance with the advice of government and medical entities as the situation has evolved. We implemented cleaning procedures for the gallery, cancelled our General Meeting scheduled for March 21 and have kept an eye on actions being taken by other arts organizations.
Yesterday, County Judge Mark Keough signed an order affecting the occupancy of premises throughout Montgomery County that went into effect at 5:00 pm yesterday and extends to April 12. Among other restrictions it states that “Events of 50 persons or more that would include any population at severe risk of severe illness should cease. The population at greatest risk is anyone over the age of 65”. Obviously, that affects many of our members and patrons and your safety is our highest priority.
In addition, virtually all school districts in the Houston area, including CISD and MISD, announced they would be closing through April 10. Many local art leagues are aligning with their school district closures. Restaurants have been ordered to cease all on-premise dining with only drive-through and takeout available.
The Executive Board, in an email vote last week, agreed to keep the gallery closed through April. This decision was based on the announcements, restrictions and declarations at that time. There have been more since then and we are continuing to monitor this fast-moving and ever-changing situation. If things improve we will rescind and shorten this closure. We are taking the position of hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.
We will continue to monitor and update you as decisions and recommendations are made by local city, county, state and federal governments and take further actions as required.
