COVID-19 UPDATE - March 17
Please note that following the decision of declaring state of emergency in Ontario by the Ontario Premier, the Ottawa Table Tennis Club will be closed until March 30th, subject to revision/extension.
Although we took all health and hygiene measures recommended by health officials such as:
- social distancing (less tables, more distance)
- limiting numbers (we limited access to only 12 members)
- provide hand sanitizer, soap and cleaning products
- strict hygiene guidelines
This is now not enough. As little as the risks were, it is now not worth taking.
We need to play a part in the solution rather than find ourselves contributing to the problem, even with all precautions we have taken. We now need to go from near zero risk to no risk at all.
I hope everybody understands and will come back... with a smash! (pun DEFINITELY intended :) )
And remember, no toilet paper is worth fighting over.
