GuideWell recently issued an Enterprise Operations Center (EOC) policy regarding COVID-19, which has recommendations by health officials for large organizations to limit and postpone all employee gatherings. To comply with GuideWell's policy, we have canceled all Regional Block by Block workshops until further notice.
