March 14 Lunch and Learn is
CANCELLED DUE TO CORONA VIRUS
April 4th AGM is
POSTPONED DUE TO CORONA VIRUS
As everyone is aware, the spread of the COVID – 19 virus (coronovirus) is a major concern and certainly has everyone’s attention. We are all being asked to take precautionary measures to reduce risk to at-risk populations especially seniors. That would be us. As we monitored the spread of the virus it became clearer to us that we needed to take more direct action. We were considering the cancellation of the Saturday Medoc presentation when we received word that Medoc staff have been directed to stay away from group presentations for now. That made the decision to cancel this session easier for us although we did so reluctantly given the high degree of interest in the session. So, we are calling this a postponement with rescheduling of the information session with Medoc to occur at a later date when we can ensure safety of everyone.
We want to act in the best interests of our members at all times and while we regret having to cancel this session we recognize this is the right decision to be made at this time. We want to encourage everyone to practice social distancing, hand washing and appropriate actions related to hygiene and social interaction generally. This will mean we will also postpone our Annual General Meeting slated for April 4th until we are confident that we can ensure risk is low.
We also recognize that this decision appears to be taken relatively late in the game. However, events are unfolding rapidly and changing almost hourly. We are adapting and deciding as best we can. We will continue to monitor the progress of the virus. When we are confident that your safety can be assured we will re-schedule.
We wanted to thank you for your interest in this session and we will continue to plan for and hold information sessions of this type in the future.
