Ontario's chief medical officer of health is recommending the immediate suspension of all large events and public gatherings due to COVID-19. Although the Oakville Family Ribfest was not scheduled until the end of June 2020 it will be postponed until June of 2021. Put on by the Rotary Club of Oakville Trafalgar, on the host campus of Sheridan College in Oakville, and in partnership with a number of community minded sponsors, the Oakville Family Ribfest is being postponed because of health and safety concerns.
 
The health and safety of all the families in our community are our top priority. Strong measures are required to manage the transmission of this virus and the timeline required to eliminate the risk of COVID-19 in Ontario will be prolonged so we believe it is prudent to take this preventative action.
 
This has not been an easy decision, but one that we believe is a responsible one and demonstrates Rotary’s concern to help our communities through this challenging time.  As we move forward, we will continue to monitor the situation closely.
