March 13, 2020 – GUELPH – In light of ongoing concerns related to COVID-19 coronavirus, Ontario Pork has made the decision to postpone its annual general meeting, scheduled for March 24 and 25, 2020 in Guelph, Ontario.
The decision to postpone was made out of an abundance of caution, based on information provided by public health officials and a growing number of travel restrictions affecting some members of our industry.
Hotel reservations made with the Delta in Guelph as part of the Ontario Pork event will be automatically cancelled.
We will continue to monitor the situation, and provide an update on a rescheduled date as soon as it can be confirmed.
COVID-19 and Ontario’s swine industry
At this point, public health officials advise that COVID-19 presents a low risk to most Canadians, and we are not anticipating a significant impact on the extended swine industry. We will continue to monitor the situation and will work with partners across the industry to manage any potential disruption.
