update on the covid-19 virus
Across the globe, several organizations have cancelled conferences and events due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus.
The health and safety of our community is paramount. Italian Week is closely monitoring the situation and will carefully follow the recommendation of public health experts. At this time, Italian Week preparations are continuing as planned, in order to proceed with the festival in June 2020.
The Italian Week team is currently reviewing its health and safety protocols to ensure it is adopting best practices. We are in contact with the City of Ottawa through the Preston Street BIA, and will continue to monitor their daily updates at: https://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/
Andrà tutto bene,
