Public Education Events Update

Dear Members;

Re:      Public Education Events

Due to COVID-19 we have temporarily suspended all Public Education Events following the direction from the Public Health Officer. I would like to remind everyone that we are still not supporting events and Public Educations gatherings. This will continue to be in place for the summer of 2020. Any events that have been planned, that cannot comply with Social Distancing Protocols (Less than 50 people in an enclosed area and 6 ft of marked separation between individuals), are to be suspended immediately and postponed till a later date.

This means that we will not be attending any School Visits / Pre School Visits / Fairs / PNE / Science World / Parades / Community Gatherings until further notice. 873 Public Education Ambulances are not available for use as well until further notice.

We understand this is difficult, but we need to ensure we are being leaders in social distancing and following direction from the Public Health Officer.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
