One of the MAS members at the star party last Saturday night has tested positive for covid. This member arrived at the observatory about 7:00 and was operating a telescope in the main observatory.

It’s recommended you test and quarantine per Minnesota and CDC guidelines.

Please forward to others in your party that may have been exposed.
