Although there is not an effective vaccine available to the general public, it appears as if wearing masks and keeping a safe distance from one another is helping keep people safe. As a result, PVACF is opening up some of our Sports and Recreation Programs with some restrictions. Air Rifle and Boccia will be by assigned dates and times only, will require masks and social distancing at all times. Fishing and hand cycling will require masks when not at a safe distance from one another. The office remains closed to the general public and members may come to the office but must wear masks and maintain social distancing.
