5 Things to Know (3.25.20)
- Your health and wellbeing are our primary concern. People with Parkinson’s are easily considered part of the vulnerable population. Therefore, we are encouraging good hygiene, frequent sanitizing, and staying home.

- Oklahoma LOUD Crowds® will NOT meet in person until AT LEAST THE END OF APRIL. At that point, we will re-evaluate the situation and communicate via email, website, facebook, phone message, etc.
- Parkinson Foundation of Oklahoma support groups will not meet until AT LEAST AFTER THE END OF APRIL. We will re-evaluate at that point.
- Since many of our partners are hospitals, long-term care communities, and gyms, most if not all other exercise classes and LOUD Crowds® may also adjust their schedules. These groups are following similar guidelines.
