ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Update: June 29, 2020
Ontario has begun the Stage 2 of the re-opening of the Province
The Province of Ontario has announced that that it will allow a gradual re-opening of the province on a region-by-region basis as progress is made in the fight against COVID-19. Halton Region was allowed to move into the Stage 2 opening on June 19, 2020. The Province has introduced new rules including a requirement to maintain physical distancing of 2m and limit public event gatherings to a maximum of 10 people. With these rules, the CSMMI is unable to hold a monthly show. The City of Burlington has not yet announced the opening of the Seniors Centre for public events. The CSMMI is continuing to monitor the situation and will advise on the September show when The City and Province allows it.
The health and well-being of our community remains our top priority and we advise everyone to follow the recommendations and requirements of Public Health Organizations, the Government of Canada, and the Province of Ontario. Please practice hand washing, and comply with social distancing and self-isolation requirements.

We thank everyone for their assistance as we all work through this challenge.
