COVID-19 Update: Summer programming

posted 3 May 2020, 18:27 by Programs Chair
Good evening SOO GO community,
As you may have already seen,
Special Olympics Ontario
has extended the suspension of programming/fundraising etc to June 30, 2020. Given this further extension, summer programming won't be kicking off until earliest July 2020. Until we know when we'll be able to start back up, we're in a holding pattern to determine next steps for summer.
We recommend signing up for SOO's newsletter as they are sending out great information around staying Healthy@Home, staying connected on a regular basis, and they'll be sending out up-to-date information around when we'll be able to start back up as well.
We recognize that many of you are anxious to see friends and get back to the sports you love, but your safety is our priority and until SOO, as well as local public health authorities, say it's okay, we can't move ahead with our programming.
We're thinking of you and we hope you're staying safe and staying connected (virtually) to friends and family.
