UPDATE: Coronavirus and Impacts to CBF

Latest on CBF events, building closures, and more as we work through the COVID-19 crisis

The health and safety of our members, visitors, volunteers, and staff are our top priorities. As such, we are exercising the following precautions in the face of this global crisis. Please stay tuned to this page for future updates about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation.

All CBF-hosted events scheduled through May 1 have been canceled. We will continue to assess the situation and update this page regularly regarding future events. Registrants will be notified of any canceled events. Be assured that all decisions will be based on our confidence in providing a healthy and safe environment for participants and staff.

For future events that have not been canceled, if you or an immediate family member have traveled to any country on which the CDC has a current Level 2 Warning or above within 14 days of a scheduled program, we ask that you please do not attend. For more information, visit the CDC travel notice webpage.

We are working with our school partners and following best practices as dictated by the Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Pennsylvania health departments as well as the CDC. At this time, student field experiences scheduled through May 1 have been canceled. We will continue to assess the situation and update this site regularly regarding future programs. At this time, we are moving forward with our summer Student Leadership and Chesapeake Classrooms professional development courses.

As of Monday, March 16, all CBF offices and buildings are closed, and our staff are working remotely. These closures will remain in effect for the foreseeable future. Any updates regarding future building closures will be posted on this page.

It's times like these when we're reminded that CBF is defined by our passionate, strong, and resilient community of trustees, staff, members, and colleagues. We know that we will eventually overcome this crisis, and the important work we do together will continue. Stay safe and be well.
