Now is the time of year we all expect the shooting season to begin. Unfortunately, out of concern for the safety of our members and the community, all upcoming PCSC events are postponed until further notice in response to the threat of Coronavirus.
We strongly encourage everyone to continue practicing social distancing. As recommended by the Illinois Department of Public Health, “Social distancing is deliberately increasing the physical space between people to avoid spreading illness. Staying at least 6 feet away from other people reduces the chances of catching COVID-19.” Also, avoid congregating in groups.
The Illinois Department of Public Health does recommend outdoor activities in this time saying, “Yes, go outdoors for fresh air and exercise. Ride a bike, walk the dog, go for a hike, jog. Social distancing does not mean staying indoors, it means avoiding close contact with people. Remember to wash your hands any time you enter from outdoors and before you eat.” In keeping with this recommendation for outdoor activities, individual members in good standing may continue to access PCSC outdoor range facilities. Access to the clubhouse and congregating in groups on the range is prohibited.
