COVID Policy for In Person Meetings

March 5, 2021 UPDATE

Given the recent (2/9/21) update to the LA County Reopening Protocol Appendix K allowing groups of 14 students, we are increasing the size of groups to up to 10 students.

January 21, 2021 UPDATE

In light of the decrease in daily COVID cases, Rolling Robots will resume all in-person activities this upcoming Monday, January 25th, 2021.  

January 5, 2021 UPDATE

To be particularly safe after this holiday season and with the large increase in case  Rolling Robots will be moving all activities other than our competition teams to online only.  We will review this every 2 weeks to determine when we can make changes to this policy.

For competition teams, we will be limiting team activities to 3 persons per team in-house. All teams should be focused on programming skills activities with only essential drivers attending in person.
