Prior to the pandemic, if the word virus came up, it probably involved a computer’s health.

And while the term often references COVID-19 these days, relying on a computer to connect with friends and family, work from home, stream entertainment and conduct a variety of other online activities is even more important than ever.

It’s in this environment the not-for-profit Cape Coral Computer Club relaunched its weekly meetings in a virtual manner last month. Wednesday afternoon sessions during busy season include social time, presentations by members on key topics and Q&As. Member benefits include being able to access resources and archived materials, and obtaining discounts on computer products and software programs. 

The club, which has 70-plus members, also provides advice on many digital fronts including operating iPhones, tablets and notepads, and using new or upgraded products and software.

The club immediately adapted when COVID-19 hit, holding its last end-of-season meeting in April via Zoom instead of in person at the Lake Kennedy Center. Club President Gary Eidson said they are looking into expanding their capacity for potential new members and their virtual attendance at meetings by increasing the number of hosts.
