As you are well aware, the world is battling with the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As responsible citizens, it’s safe to say that all of us need to be aware of proper personal protective hygiene.
Many of our spring/summer programs will commence in the next month or so, but as many of you are aware municipalities have closed operations until April 5 and then will supply updates for the local community.
In Canada, we do have the advantage of being supported by the public health system, but it will take all of us as individuals to practice proper hygiene habits to flatten to curve and halt the progression of this infectious disease.
The NBHAC will, however, continue to monitor and assess the situation as well as the recommendations of Provincial Health Units and with the actions of the Municipal Facility operator in curtailing or cancelling operations at the community centres and arenas.

Thank you for keeping everyone healthy.
