Following our initial alert from the province related to covid-19 Virus, our Executive met this evening and considered what actions we should take at the Branch level. The Executive has decided that Branch #24 will remain open to all Royal Canadian Legion members. All public functions including TGIF, Catering, Income tax returns and bingo have been suspended indefinitely. While the risk is low at this time, it is prudent to take these actions to decrease the risk to our members, public and employees. We would like to reinforce the need for good hygienic practices-including regular handwashing, covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing and staying at home if exhibiting symptoms of illness. At this time, we are asking all members who have been outside of Canada to avoid using the Legion for the 14 days immediately following their return . We will continue to monitor the Health and Wellness alerts and act accordingly as required.
