UPDATE (ISSUED March 15, 2020)
While the actual event and ceremony has been cancelled due to COVID-19 Protocols , the City of Vancouver will sill be raising on mast 56 Greek Flags until March 30th 2020.
PHMA will be supporting the honoring of the Hellenes by continuing with our "open public ride" on March 21st (2020) and visiting some of the flag stations.
THIS RIDE HAS NOW BEEN COMPLETED
COVID -19 IS REAL
SOCIAL DISTANCING IS A MUST
While we will continue with scheduled group (public) rides, we will adhere to the concerns expressed by our Provincial Health Minister and Canadian Government.
We MUST practice responsible social distancing by:
1) Collectively refrain from any bodily contact
- no hand shaking, fist-bumps, hugging, etc ..
2) Hand sanitize will be readily available at all meets
3) Please cough or sneeze into the bend of your arm
4) Avoid touching each others bikes, helmets, gloves and surfaces
5) If you feel ill or exhibit symptoms associated with COVID-19, you are respectfully asked to stay at home
6) Must maintain a safe distance from each other when standing or meeting.
In this time of crisis, we need to be aware of our surroundings and actions and the effect that they can have on others around us.
While we look forward to riding together- we must always remember that we can not jeopardize people in our community, our family, our friends - and ourselves.
