Covid-19 Updates

Dear community,

I recognize that we all are going through a difficult time with covid-19 safety measures and many job losses. Deaf Spectrum is working hard to get you all the updated information about upcoming events. We will work on a vlog to be distributed at the end of this week to let you know what we’ve been working on and our short-term goals for the time being. Our priority right now is to follow social-distance practices to limit the chances of spreading coronavirus.

Please stay well and stay healthy.
