Out of concern for the health and safety of our clients, families, volunteers and staff we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Memorial Picnic that was scheduled to take place on September 19, 2020.
Dr. Lawrence Lau, Medical Officer of Health for the Region of Peel recently spoke about the current reality. Peel was hard hit by COVID and while the numbers have reduced, Peel is one of the few Regions still reporting double digit cases. There is great concern for the implications when children return to school in the coming weeks. Dr. Lau emphasized the importance of: limiting proximity (maintaining 2 metre distance); limit number (keep your circle small); and limit duration (minimize time spent in groups and wear a mask).
We need to continue to be vigilant and therefore the decision has been made to cancel the Memorial Picnic on September 19, 2020.
