Skate Canada Brampton-Chinguacousy (SCBC) has been watching closely the situational effects of COVID-19 with The City of Brampton and the Peel Public Health. There are no known confirmed cases of COVID-19 that have direct ties to SCBC or Cassie Campbell Community Centre.
At this time there is no plan to cancel or postpone any regularly schedule skating sessions, practices or events. We will continue to monitor the situation and seek advice and recommendations in the coming days and weeks to make sure we make informed decisions about any changes to that plan. The overriding factor in our decisions will be the safety of our skaters, staff and coaches.
We will communicate any changes to events as soon as we have additional information.
Peel Public Health is reporting the current risk of contracting COVID-19 as low.
