Dear Pickering Squash Club (PSC) Members. We trust this message finds you well. It has been said many times that “we live in interesting times”. We could certainly say we didn’t see this one coming, nor could we have ever predicted the severe impact, globally!
To that point, we are experiencing a significant call to action by the World Health Organization, all levels of government, private and public sectors, likely as never before. We must pull out all the stops to protect each other and ourselves. Health, care and safety at the forefront! On behalf of the Pickering Squash Club executive team, we would urge you to be diligent, practice social distance, and take all precautions as well communicated via WHO through the media, workplace and all other means. Do not hesitate to seek medical help in the event you are experiencing any related symptoms of the COVID-19 virus, as well communicated.
In the interest of everyone’s safety, and following the lead by Squash Canada, Squash Ontario, OSDL, City of Pickering, other organizations, effective immediately, we are deferring all PSC organized match play until further notice. We will provide a further update in the coming weeks regarding rescheduled dates. Update to follow as well regarding plans for the junior squash program, club championships and banquet.
Many of you will have also received the following notice from the City of Pickering, indicating closure of the Rec Complex and other City managed facilities effective earlier this afternoon to April 05, inclusive. Thanks to Terry, we have posted the following notice from the City, on our web site. See the following link https://pickeringsquash.club/corvid-19-closures/ .
Finally, we want to encourage you to take all precautions, stay safe, stay informed, seek immediate help if you are feeling ill with any symptoms.
President, Pickering Squash Club
