COVID-19 MEANS CANCELLED EVENTS
The societal and governmental responses to the threat from COVID19 are resulting in some events being cancelled and / or postponed.
Any event where 250 or more people congregate in relatively close proximity is in this category.
Because of this not all the events promoted
in the posters you may see below will happen.
IF you have any questions about any event
the best source of information is to ask the event organizer.
Another source of information is on the
Whats Up In Grand Forks BC Facebook group (if you are a Facebook user).
There is a notice post (pinned to the beginning of the group feed)
specifically for this purpose: events being cancelled or postponed are being collected there.
Posting is voluntary so organizers may or may not get around to updating that thread (I’d imagine that a number of events aren’t all that easy to shut down so posting might slip their minds)
IF you are concerned about an event you had planned to attend check those sources to find out if it’s taking place or not. And remember that any inconvenience you may be experiencing likely pales in comparison to the way those who worked hard to put it on feel . . . so please be courteous.
Don’t agree with all the concern and hoopla causing events to be cancelled? Think the world has lost its mind because sooner or later most people will encounter it and it doesn’t scare you the way it might if you were in the 60+ age group?
I’d strongly suggest you learn more about a term you may be hearing: flattening the curve. Essentially no one wants the system to be overwhelmed all at once by a rush of cases – that would be a catastrophe. You could start by reading this article at VOX.

a short video on how to use these poster boards
Looking for the Calendar?
After 8 years of hosting a calendar of events whatsupgf.com, meaning Les Johnson, has stopped doing that. It’s a lot of effort, and some cost, to make that work and, sad to say, almost no one uses it because most people just go to the Facebook group for their information anyway. So at some point you have to stop beating the dead horse . . .
One thing I noticed in the past is that people cannot remember every place they should be submitting information about their events. They remember to place an ad but forget to put up posters OR they put up posters but don’t have the time (or information) to notify the paper or websites like whatsupgf.com. So to help ‘get the word out’ WhatsUpGF makes it possible for you to scan and read, online, the contents of public notice boards in the community. See the section at the top of the page. We’ll be updating the pictures on a weekly basis.
