In consideration of realities outlined below, sadly this weekend’s Warkworth Maple Syrup Festival is cancelled: – Acceleration of COVID19 issues.
– Appeals and advice from doctors, Health Ministries and government spokes persons to cancel or postpone gatherings of over 250 people.
-Our inability to ensure social distancing in our normal crowd sizes of 1000-2000 people a day on the buses and in line ups
– Our need to protect our volunteers many of whom are seniors.
– Our desire not to provide an environment where our children are at risk.
– Our desire to do our part in “flattening the curve” and keep this horrible virus from spreading to our area and Ontario.
Please follow the guidelines on staying safe as we face down this virus.
