We are cancelling Coffeehouses effective March 12 forward.
At 8pm on Wednesday evening, March 11, we got this from Dr. Bonnie Henry, BC’s chief health officer —
She advised people to take individual risk assessments, recommending people increase their distance to others, think carefully about attending large group events, wash their hands regularly and stay away from others when they suspect they might be falling ill.
“This is not forever. This is for the coming weeks. The coming weeks where we know we have to do everything we can to prevent transmission of infection in our communities, protect those people that are more likely to have severe illness, and particularly our seniors and elders,” she said.
The general situation has changed even from this morning. We will take this new advice and be more cautious.
So it is with regret, an abundance of caution and respect for our elderly audience and performers, that yes, we will have to cancel the Coffeehouse events for now. We will, of course, let you know when we’ll resume.
We will continue to watch for the signs when we can all gather again and have a good musical time!
