We regret to inform you that the WARCI Board has decided to cancel the June and July 2020 WARCI swap meets due to COVID-19. It is likely that the community spread of COVID-19 will continue well into the summer months. Due to the age demographic of our membership, a swap meet poses an unacceptable level of risk to our buyers, sellers, volunteers, and their families.
In addition to the obvious health risk, the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County currently have orders in effect that prohibit gatherings of 10 or more people. For more information on the local orders, see Moving Milwaukee Forward, the COVID-19 Public Health Plan for the City of Milwaukee, and the Local Health Plan for Milwaukee County.
The WARCI Board will continue to monitor the situation throughout the year and reassess the feasibility of the August, September, and November meets at a later date.
On behalf of the WARCI board, we wish you and your family the best of health and we thank you for your patience as we navigate the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
