As a community programmer, I am choosing to be proactive about the health of my event attendees. I will not place unnecessary risks on attendees.
I haven’t posted in a few days as there has been much uncertainty worldwide. This week, many non-essential events around the world have been cancelled due to the health risk concerns with COVID-19.
Last night, I read the Government’s community-based measures to mitigate the spread of the disease. While the official direction for community programmers remains unclear, I’ve decided to postpone the upcoming book club scheduled for March 23 and to cancel Speed Dating scheduled for March 29.
Full refunds have been made and will appear back in your account within 7 days via Eventbrite.
My decision is in the best interest of my attendees. I cannot guarantee “social distancing” at my events, as the whole point is to get to know new people. I hope we’ll be back up and running in April. However, I’m working to create contingency plans for connecting remotely if that is not possible.
The wellness of attendees is my top priority.
In the interim, I hope to continue to feature a positive light on our province in these uncertain days ahead. If you have an uplifting story you want to share, please email me.
