3/15/20 - Message from POCI president Larry Crider

The spread of COVID-19, or coronavirus, is top of mind for many over the past few weeks. POCI has been monitoring this situation and taking precautionary measures where necessary as our members safety is our priority. We are sharing important information to help protect the health and well being of all POCI members, office staff, and other non-essential POCI personnel. We will continue to update all with any new information.

We are sharing the details of POCI’s response for your reference. It is up to you as individuals to determine what steps are appropriate for your travel to any POCI event. These measures are purely a precaution in an effort to mitigate any potential transmission, despite the low exposure risk.

Simple preventative measures like regularly washing hands with soap, covering sneezes and coughs, and cleaning objects and surfaces can make a difference. We are advising people to limit personal contact, such as shaking hands, and to keep a distance of up to three feet from people when possible. The CDC has an extensive list of tips that they recommend. You can find those HERE.

With these concerns on everyone’s mind and the upcoming convention plans, we have reached out to local resources in the Oklahoma area. As of this date, only one confirmed case has been documented in the Northeast part of Oklahoma. This person has already fully recovered. It was also reported as the warmer temperatures and humidity comes into play, the chances of the virus to survive and spread will diminish.  By the arrival of the 2020 POCI Convention to Oklahoma in July, the threat level should be at a non-existing or low level of concern. Continuing discussions with Hard Rock will continue and all updates will be sent to the general membership.

As of now, the convention will continue as planned

We will continue to monitor this situation closely and will update POCI members as information becomes available. We encourage you to review CDC guidelines carefully and consider steps you can take to stay safe in your travels.
