COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS: Milton Chamber Event Update

The Milton Chamber of Commerce (MCC) continues to monitor and assess new developments pertaining to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). In terms of the MCC’s upcoming events, we are taking our lead from Public Health, who is currently not suggesting the postponement or cancellation of any scheduled events. As a result, we are proceeding as planned with all upcoming MCC events.

The safety and well-being of our members and community are of the utmost importance to us. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will update this policy as required. We will communicate any event changes to registrants, our members, and the public through email, social media posts, and updates on our website. Should the directive from the Region of Halton Public Health change, the MCC will have alternative options for our events – including holding virtual programs and consider rescheduling events.

Currently, we encourage all event attendees to:

Evaluate their own health (and the health of people they’re in close contact with), when deciding to attend an upcoming MCC event. A temporary change to our refund policy has been made for those who are no longer able to attend an event (see below).

Follow the guidance of the Region of Halton Public Health, everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of viruses, including but not limited to:

  • Wash your hands often with warm water and soap or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Sneeze and cough into your sleeve
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Use sanitization materials offered complimentary at Chamber events
  • Greet other event attendees with a fist bump or wave, instead of a handshake
Temporary Change to the MCC Refund Policy

During this time, we have revised our MCC Event Refund Policy for registrants. If you are not able to attend an event, due to illness please contact the Chamber by email prior to the event to info@miltonchamber.com.

 

As published on the Region of Halton Public Health site, symptoms of the COVID-19 Coronavirus can range from mild – like the flu and other common respiratory infections – to severe, and can include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. If you are unwell, we encourage you to stay home to recover.
