On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

The Family Caregivers of Mercy is holding a 3-part series on the Comprehensive Guide.  Planning ahead or contingency planning as a caregiver can be difficult as we do not know what the future holds.  Contingency planning can reduce stress by ensuring you and your successor caregiver know what to do in the event of a change in condition of your care receiver or yourself.  Join us in creating your own comprehensive guide, gathering and organizing personal and legal documents, and discussing your wishes to help you be best prepared for your future. 

Registration is required.  Free boxed lunch is included.
