These are extraordinary times that require extraordinary measures for the safety of our members and the community. Many members of our PROBUS Club are in the high risk category.
As of March 13th the Ontario Ministry of Health is asking anyone who has returned from international travel (including to the US) to self-isolate for 14 days. [Today] the Federal Government is advising any Canadians who are travelling abroad to return to Canada immediately.
For the safety of all, the Management Committee has decided to cancel all PROBUS Club of Prince Edward County events, effective immediately and until further notice. This includes all Activity Groups and events. Social & Entertainment Chair Wendy will be emailing the Activity Group Leaders and asking them to advise the membership of their groups of this decision.
You’ll find attached a a letter from the President of PROBUS Canada notifying all Clubs of the situation.
Stay safe, wash your hands, use social distancing and stay home as much as possible.
President Andy and the Management Committee
Our club is always open to new members!
