 +  ​If you know that someone has a contagious disease, and you've signed up for our event, please do not seek physical contact with that person before the event. ​ If you have anything that needs to be discussed because you need it for the event, use e-mail, phone calls, whatever, but don't visit each other, the reason being rule #2.
