COVID-19 UPDATE: Rotary Club of International Drive

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Meeting Disruption Update:

Dear fellow Club Members and visiting Rotarians,

As you are aware, we are currently dealing with an unprecedented global event of such magnitude that it has caused a disruption in our location-based meetings every Wednesday evening. While the need to self-quarantine as a precaution remains, we have opted to continue meeting every Wednesday at 6:30 pm via Google Hangouts.

This change ensures we maintain our communication and engagement as Club Members, but it also serves as an opportunity to interact socially. After all, fellowship is at the center of all Rotary meetings and we strongly believe that our ability to remain in constant communication will help us all get through this.

As a general rule we are all practicing Social Distancing, which has the potential to decrease the spread of Coronavirus in the Central Florida region and the rest of the country. In addition, we ask everyone to practice these active health alert hygiene measures:

  • Wash your hands with soap vigorously and as often as you can. Washing hands for 30 seconds is recommended by health officials as an effective way to remove viruses and bacteria from our hands.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth unless you have washed your hands. This is often the way humans may become infected, after coming in contact with someone with Coronavirus.
  • Communicate to others if you believe that you have become infected and self-isolate to avoid further contact. Seek medical attention if you feel that your symptoms are becoming more severe.
  • If you are living with others and pets, please maintain a distance of 6 feet (2 meters) or more and avoid touching the same surfaces (i.e. door handles, faucets, appliances, etc.).

This is not a comprehensive list and we defer to the advice of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for additional guidelines, which can be accessed via their dedicated COVID-19 portal at

The nature of these times are uncertain, but we know that all challenges have a solution. Once the threat passes, we will return to our regular meeting at our weekly location on I-Drive.

Thank you for your understanding and support. We look forward to seeing you online. If you are wanting to make a “virtual” visit, please contact our Club’s PR Chair, Andres Goyanes, to request an invite.
