The PRhyme member continues, “The COVID-19 virus is seriously attacking our nation in the worse way; not only am I staying in as much as I can and following the guidelines our government and the CDC have given us, but I am asking all of you to be safe and do the same. Please know, we are in the process of rescheduling the tour and will have more info as soon as possible.”
