Many of our Bigs and Littles have found creative ways to meet virtually and spend time together to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As a result, you have been able to maintain a meaningful relationship with each other.

Many Bigs have also been requesting approval to meet in-person.  We all recognize the many mental health and other positive benefits of such in-person meetings when done safely.  Resuming in-person meetings is a personal and important decision between each Big, Little, and the parent/legal guardian of the Little. While there is never any guarantee that you will not be infected with the virus every time you step out of your home, as we all know there are reasonable precautions we can take that will reduce that risk.
