Prairie Post (East Edition) - - CLASSIFIED­S - Con­trib­uted

Fol­low­ing Gov­ern­ment of Al­berta’s di­rec­tive, the Canalta Cen­tre will pro­hibit all pub­lic and pri­vate gath­er­ings of 250 peo­ple or more.

“We ex­pect that the COVID-19 (coro­n­avirus) pro­hi­bi­tion on at­ten­dees to con­tinue at least un­til March 31, at which time we will co­or­di­nate with pub­lic health of­fi­cials to de­ter­mine whether it is safe to re­turn to a typ­i­cal event sched­ule. We have the abil­ity to con­tain the spread of this epi­demic, and our first pri­or­ity is the safety of our guests, em­ploy­ees, fans, play­ers, and en­ter­tain­ers. We are com­mit­ted to act­ing to do what is nec­es­sary and ef­fec­tive in re­duc­ing the rate of the spread. There is no magic silver bullet at the mo­ment med­i­cally but there is a very suc­cess­ful ef­fort that we can take to slow the spread of this dis­ease.

“’We are cur­rently work­ing with our event or­ga­niz­ers and sport team ten­ants to de­ter­mine how to best man­age the events,” said Tammy Sweeney, Canalta Cen­tre Gen­eral Man­ager. “We ap­pre­ci­ate the pub­lic’s pa­tience and un­der­stand­ing re­gard­ing this is­sue, as the health and pub­lic safety of our guests and em­ploy­ees re­main a pri­or­ity. The coro­n­avirus re­sponse rep­re­sents an un­prece­dented time for us, but we hope to re­turn to nor­mal op­er­a­tions soon.’”

Sev­eral Canalta Cen­tre events are ex­pected to be im­pacted through the up­com­ing months in­clud­ing the Tigers Games, the Brad Pais­ley show can­celled for March 13th, Roseanne Barr, Baby Shark and po­ten­tially oth­ers. Sweeney says that the fa­cil­ity staff is work­ing with the Tigers to de­ter­mine how this di­rec­tive will im­pact the re­main­ing sea­son sched­ule. Also, ASM Global is work­ing with en­ter­tain­ment pro­mot­ers to de­ter­mine whether im­pacted live mu­sic events will be resched­uled or can­celed.

More in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing sched­uled events – along with pos­si­ble ticket re­funds – is ex­pected in the next few days. ASM Global en­cour­ages fans to visit the Canatla Cen­tre web­site http:// www.canal­ta­cen­tre.com/ for the most re­cent up­dates.
