As communities across the world are struggling with the effects of the new novel coronavirus now called Covid-19, we wanted to take a moment to reassure you about the steps Blu Crew are taking to keep ourselves and everyone’s families as safe as possible.
Several group members are in the at risk category, or care for/live with someone who is at risk. As such with immediate effect we are cancelling all group activities including rehearsals, meetings and performances until such time that the Government’s advice changes.
It has not been an easy decision to make but given the Government’s advice to limit social interactions and non essential travel we all felt we had no choice. Social distancing is hard but it is the core idea behind “flattening the infection curve” that the media have been talking about. The aim of this is to allow the NHS to deal with a smaller number of cases at any given time therefore limiting the pressure on our doctors, nurses and hospitals as the situation progresses.
This is an unprecedented event and changes day by day. We know this is not ideal and is going to be very disappointing for us all but the health and safety of our members and your guests is paramount. We would like to encourage everyone to follow the relevant Government and WHO guidelines, to try and restrict your social activity, where possible, to the bare minimum.
We hope you understand.
