Turns out we were just a little ahead of the curve. - latest from MAAC.         Zone B Atlantic Statement and Guidance Regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic.
As the Covid-19 outbreak progresses, Club Executive and members should now be seriously considering its impact on the 2020 flying season. Currently, the indicated strategy for slowing down the rate of new infections is ‘social distancing’ – staying out of the breathing/contact range of other people. If successful, the ‘social distancing’ strategy will slow the infection rate but prolong the outbreak for several more months.
Members are strongly urged to consider the best balance between your health, enjoyment of your hobby and public safety as the 2020 flying season gets underway.  As such, my current recommendations to Clubs and members for meetings and events which are planned between now and Canada Day are:
• Indoor club meetings and flying sessions should be cancelled until further notice.  As the weather    warms, consider outdoor meetings while respecting recommended precautions and social distancing.
• Planned flying events open to other clubs and the public should be either cancelled or changed to club members only.  (Safety impact: spotters can’t function under social distancing protocols that says 2 meter or 6 feet.)
• MAAC sanctioned open events that are cancelled or changed to members only should be ‘de-listed’ on the MAAC events page immediately upon reaching a formal Club decision
• Food and drink preparation should be by individual members for their own consumption.  (Avoid any group handling)
• Members should be encouraged to use their own hand sanitizers. (Minimize group handling)
• Regular flying activities should continue while respecting recommended precautions, social distancing and MAAC safety rules; until and unless health authorities issue further guidance.
• Members should be formally requested to stay home if they are not feeling well for the currently recommended period of 14 days.
• Continue to monitor Health Canada’s Covid-19 web site (Health Canada’s Covid-19 web site ) for the latest information on this rapidly developing situation.
Finally, please be aware that the possibility exists that the recommendations above will be extended to Labour day and beyond, depending on how the outbreak progresses and government policies.  2020 is shaping up to be an unforgettable year for all of us.  The Zone B and your MAAC Leadership teams are counting on your support and diligence as we face this unprecedented future together.
Hoping we all stay healthy and fly safely,

We'll give this a little thought.... Angry
