CORONA VIRUS AND PGOSA - a message from your Board of Directors-March 16, 2020
The Board of Directors has voted today, March 16, 2020, to suspend ALL PGOSA and PGOSA affiliate operations until further notice.
The RDN has just closed its public facilities (Oceanside Arena and Ravensong Centre) and has issued a press release to that effect today.
We are all aware of the global pandemic known as Coronavirus (Covid-19).
PLEASE NOTE--- we have confirmed with our Insurance provider that there is no Accident OR Liability coverage for this infection.
So, now that there is a formal suspension of activity, IF some one/group decides to ignore it, you will be completely liable for any unhappy follow-up by members.
In other words, DON'T DO IT!!!
Seniors are particularly susceptible to the Coronavirus and it is spread by proximity contact. The virus is now confirmed to have hit VanIsle (Victoria and Comox Valley). As there is a 15 day incubation period, it is quite likely that there are numerous other cases on Vanisle now.
The only "remedy" to the coronavirus is isolation (vs congregation).
Despite how annoying and upsetting this action will be (especially as the Spring Calendar of events is about to begin) to many/all of us.....we cannot pretend this virus is not lethal to Seniors......it is.
We will be monitoring the situation but it looks like a "months; not days" situation presently.
Thanks, Folks.....please stay safe and follow all safety precautions.
