With growing global concerns around COVID-19 (“coronavirus”), we are staying up to date on the developments and watching closely the information from Health and Government Authorities, ensuring we follow their recommendations. The health and safety of all vendors and customers of the Summerland Rotary Sunday Market and our Summerland Rotary volunteers are of utmost importance.
The Public Health Agency of Canada has currently assessed the public health risk associated with COVID-19 as low, in Canada and British Columbia, something we will continue to monitor.
The announcement of March 12, 2020 by the BC Provincial Health Officer has huge implications to Farmers Markets as it prohibits public gatherings of more than 250 persons and recommends social distancing practices.

At this time; the Summerland Rotary Sunday Market will continue as planned on the 21st of June (92 days from now) however, the Rotary Club of Summerland Executive will continue to monitor the situation as things are changing daily.
Wish you all good health during these unprecedented times.
