2020-03-13 Special Notice – Covid-19
As you are all likely aware by now, the virus that has practically shut down countries, their supply chains and most social events continues to spread.
We do not know yet how quickly this infection will spread here but Ottawa Health is taking it seriously and setting up remote stations to deal with possible cases in order to relieve the hospitals. Many social events are being cancelled here and across the country. Warnings are being issued about quelling the infectious curve in order to give time to health providers to react. Seniors are more at risk than youth – and we are a bunch of seniors.
Although the infection rate at this time is low in the Ottawa area, the executive has agreed that it would be prudent to play safe and to curtail club activities for the time being.
Bottom line – we will take a cautious approach for now.
Tuesday March 17, 2020 meeting will be cancelled.
Planned activities for cancelled evenings will be rescheduled.
Further cancellations are pending and will depend on ongoing developments.
I am working with the competition chairs and exec to determine the best way forward in order to provide a sense of completion for this season.
President, Camera Club of Ottawa
