Dear OVO Members,

With the Omicron variant now sweeping across all of Canada, and its exponential daily growth, the Ontario Government has imposed restrictions that include a maximum of 10 people gathering outside.

Please check for the list of restrictions/limits https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/covid-19-ontario-jan-3-2022-ford-public-health-measures-1.6302531

While we can’t guarantee that we would get only 10 walkers at a walk, nor can we maintain a safe distance apart on sidewalks, we will be putting all scheduled walks on hold until further notice.

We do however, encourage you to continue to do your walks and log them into the Neighbourhood Walking Program, or email Karen Venema to join the virtual Round and Long Distance Walk that she has recently created and sent out information on to you all.
Stay healthy, and as active as you can throughout this time when we can’t get together. We look forward to being able to walk again as a group in the near future.
Jane Fawcett
President
