Throughout the past year, we have been a member of the large gatherings task force organized by the City of Waterloo. The large gatherings task force presented our final report and recommendations on March 2nd, 2020 to City Council. From the report came four themes: Operational Excellence, Culture Change, Community Impact, and Ongoing Initiatives.
We had planned for a peer-to-peer "Expectation versus Reality" campaign that would highlight reasons not to attend unsanctioned large gatherings. Though initial plans had to be transformed to fit the context of COVID-19, we hope to continue working with the City and other community partners to implement the recommendations identified in the report.
