SSYO is monitoring COVID-19 recommendations

The SSYO board is paying close attention to local developments regarding the COVID-19 illness.  At this time, health officials have not banned large public gatherings and it appears the RSO March 14 concert will go ahead as scheduled with the SSYO as part of their evening concert.

Any SSYO musicians who wish to leave after the performance can do so.  There is no requirement to stay for the full RSO concert or the reception afterward.  If an SSYO musician is feeling unwell, they should not attend.  This is the advice of Saskatchewan Health.

Please see important information from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health at: https://www.saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus#utm_campaign=q2_2015&utm_medium=short&utm_source=%2Fcoronavirus

The Conexus Arts Centre has also posted information about the cleaning protocols they have implemented for high-touch surfaces in public areas, including bars, handrails, and seat arms, elevators and washrooms at: https://www.conexusartscentre.ca/cac-covid-19

Safety Notice to Parents and Youth

Knox Metropolitan Church informed the Board that an individual alleged to have been convicted of child abuse in the United States was seen attending their church service and may be living in the area.

The Board takes this information seriously and considers it to be a good reminder to musicians and parents to be ever vigilant about safety going in and out of the church before and after rehearsals.

Musicians, please do not walk to your vehicles alone - walk in groups, be alert to your surroundings and avoid distractions (i.e. cell phones).

It is the Board's expectation parents will speak with their children about safety concerns.  Thank you for your attention to this important notice.

If you have any questions, please contact the Board:  info@ssyo.ca
