Programs paused due to COVID-19
The Wayside Operating Committee met this afternoon (March 13, 2020) and reached the decision to suspend the Monday 11am Dementia Friendly Chair Yoga and Wednesday 10:30am Chair Yoga Programs until further notice. While the incidence of COVID19 is very low in our community the decision was to be proactive rather than reactive. The concern is participants of these programs may be in the high-risk segments of the population (age or pre-existing medical conditions). I was told, this is not a decision that we made lightly but one that we felt was in the best interests of both the Wayside and Emmanuel communities.
City Facility Closures and Program Cancellations
To further protect the wellbeing of residents and slow the potential spread of COVID-19 in our community, the Region of Waterloo, City of Cambridge, City of Kitchener, City of Waterloo and area Townships have also made the difficult decision to close all municipally-operated recreational and cultural facilities to the public and cancel all city-run programs and events until May as of March 16, 2020.

The Region of Waterloo Public Health has a COVID-19 website https://www.regionofwaterloo.ca/en/health-and-wellness/2019-novel-coronavirus.aspx#
that is regularly updated with helpful resources and new developments.
