NOTICE TO ALL SIU MEMBERS REGARDING COVID-19

March 12, 2020

Brothers and Sisters,

The Montreal Hall will be closed due to the COVID-19 Virus. There has been a report of a Member in Montreal feeling ill. They have not had to undergo any treatment of any kind, and have not tested positive for the coronavirus, but we value your safety along with the safety of our staff. The Hall will be closed for a minimum of 7 days, and an update will be given early next week if the closure will need to be extended.

The Hall will operate according to the National Shipping guidelines holiday/weekend shipping. In order to register to ship out, please contact a dispatcher at the Montreal hall who will put your name on a list to ship out. You will only need to call in once during this closure, and your name will stay on the list for as long as the Hall remains closed.

Due to the coronavirus, dues should be sent via cheque or money order through the mail. If a delay is needed, dues will be dealt on a case by case basis.

Thank you for your understanding, and as we have mentioned previously, please take all of the suggested precautions and follow advice from the national and global health centres to protect yourself and others from the spread of the COVID-19 Virus.

Fraternally,

SIU of Canada
