Official Statement on the Delta Variant of COVID-19

Out of an abundance of caution, all in-person events hosted by The John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health have either been postponed or moved to a virtual platform until the end of the September. At that time, the feasibility and safety of in-person events will be reassessed and rescheduled. Thank you for understanding.

The emergence of the COVID-19 virus Delta variant and the rise in cases has led The Ritter Professional Advisory Board to encourage people to return to masking indoors, regular handwashing, and practicing social distancing.

The Ritter Professional Advisory Board strongly urges all eligible people get vaccinated immediately if you have not done so already. The COVID-19 vaccine greatly decreases the risk of serious complications from the virus.

Please note: The vaccine will not negatively affect the use of commonly prescribed blood pressure medications, such as ARBs, beta blockers and ACE inhibitors.
