IMPORTANT UPDATE MARCH 13: DANCES CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE 

Dear Members,

OSDS will be cancelling the dance tonight, and future dances until further notice.

There has been new information as of today (see source below) and it is recommended to cancel social dance events to help contain the spread of COVID19 and reduce hospital operation load. Since dance is a high physical proximity activity, we are canceling dances in order to help our health care system and our communities.

Continue to stay calm, informed, help each other and take precautions as advised by Canada, Ontario and Ottawa Public Health websites: https://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/public-health-topics/novel-coronavirus.aspx

Thank you!

- OSDS Executive Committee
