Corona Virus Update
In accordance with Governor Hogan's order that requires the closure of senior citizen activity centers, Live & Learn Bethesda will be closed from Friday March 13, 2020 until after the termination of the state of emergency proclamation has been rescinded. All classes have been suspended until further notice. As soon as we receive further direction from the Governor's office, we will provide you with an update about resuming classes.
If you are currently registered for any of our exercise classes, you will receive credit for each cancelled session that can be used for future classes.
We are hoping to reschedule some of the remaining March classes in the Spring/Summer catalog session, and registrants in each of those cancelled classes will receive an email notifying them of the status of each class that they are registered in. Please be sure to check your emails.
In the next week you will be receiving the Spring/Summer 2020 catalog for classes starting April 1st.. We will not be accepting registrations for classes in the Spring/Summer catalog until we receive further direction from the Governor's office.
Please follow the guidelines set up by health authorities to remain safe during the pandemic.
