Hikes on hold…

As of Friday, the Moncton Region (Zone 1) has transitioned to the Orange Level under the province’s COVID-19 recovery plan.  The change to Orange means residents in those zones must stay in a two household bubble, but unlike the previous version of the Orange level, they can now extend to include caregivers or immediate family members.  Outdoor gatherings are reduced to 10 persons or fewer with physical distancing.  As a result of this change, all scheduled hikes will be cancelled until further notice, including the Annual General Meeting.

Thanks.

If any questions, please call me at 871-4457.
