Festivals and Events
Many festivals and events in 2020 in Chatham-Kent have been and are being cancelled. We are sharing these updates through Social Media, please continue to follow us there for updates.
In the meantime, the ESA (Event Safety Alliance) has introduced a framework for reopening events. You can find a copy of the Covid Re-opening Guide here.
We encourage using this framework provided through the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario, as you re-open your tourism attraction.
Furthermore, we encourage you to check with CK Public Health before opening your tourism site or encouraging people to attend a tourism site. It is ultimately up to the MOH to decide what can re-open and when, along with specific guidelines and direction.
Re-opening at a Glance
While re-opening starts to take shape, note there are still limitations within each sector. The following link has all of the details, however, we thought we'd highlight a few. Keeping these regulations in mind will help shape what your own personal re-opening will look like as you work towards that goal.
