Conservative group announces ‘difficult decision’ amid coronavirus fears

The conservative nonprofit Young America’s Foundation announced the cancellation of all of its events through April because of coronavirus.

“As Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to be a concern worldwide, Young America’s Foundation has made the difficult decision to cancel all of our programs through April,” Ron Robinson of YAF wrote to supporters in an email. “This includes all supporter and student events at our National Headquarters, Reagan Ranch, Reagan Ranch Center, and on campuses nationwide.”

“At this critical time for our country, this was not the decision we wanted to make. Despite the risk to most Americans—especially young Americans—remaining low, some of our students’ families, speakers, and YAF’s generous supporters remain vulnerable,” Robinson added.

The move came after President Donald Trump addressed the nation from the Oval Office on the threat of the coronavirus pandemic.

“YAF echoes the sentiment expressed by President Trump in his address to the nation Wednesday evening with this announcement to put the wellbeing of those who participate in our programs first. For our California programs, we are also following the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and California Department of Public Health,” Robinson said.
