City of Cambridge programming to continue, including March Break camps

Posted on Friday March 13, 2020

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, the health and wellbeing of our community remains our top priority. We continue to work closely with the Region of Waterloo Public Health to monitor the most current information and take appropriate action at their direction.

At this time, all City programming and events will continue to go ahead with the possible exception of the Cambridge Farmers’ Market. It will be open Saturday, Mar. 14 and then we will re-evaluate future dates in line with the Chief Medical Officer’s recommended crowd limit of 250 people.

Currently, there are no further changes to the City’s operations or services as a result of COVID-19. However, this is a rapidly evolving situation and consultation with Public Health is ongoing. We will advise of any changes on our webpage www.cambridge.ca/covid19 and through social media.

Please note that March Break camps are going ahead but no further camps will be offered during the additional two-week school break.

The City is taking proactive measures to help minimize the spread of infection in the community. We’ve increased our level of cleaning and disinfecting in facilities, particularly in high-traffic and communal areas; posters with prevention tips have been posted in all City facilities; and a dedicated pandemic response team has been established.

We understand that this is a difficult situation and we will continue to provide updates as it unfolds. We encourage all residents to remain calm and follow best practices for virus prevention.
