ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Update: August 9, 2020
CSMMI Cancels the Monthly Shows for Fall 2020
The CSMMI announced today that it has cancelled the remaining monthly shows and meetings originally scheduled for September, October and November 2020. This decision was made to ensure the safety of its members, vendors and guests. The CSMMI Executive is in discussions with the City of Burlington, Ontario to work through the details in order to ensure we can host a safe event when we do re-open. At this time, we are planning to re-open on Sunday, January 17, 2021. We expect to release our schedule of shows later this autumn. Please check this website for regular updates.
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. The City of Burlington has passed a by-law requiring the wearing of a non-surgical face mask when inside a building, when using public transit and whenever a citizen is unable to maintain a physical distance of 2 metres from another person who does not reside in the same home.
For details and answers to frequently asked questions regarding the Burlington mask by-law, see www.burlington.ca/en/your-city/coronavirus-covid-19-faqs.asp#masks
