I’ll be at the JUNOs again this week, and the big news this morning is The JUNOs are going ahead with their plans and events, kicking off today in Saskatoon, culminating with the awards ceremonies Saturday and CBC’s broadcast of the major awards and performances on Sunday.
Here’s the statement from CARAS president and CEO Allan Reid:
“The health, safety and well-being of everyone is of paramount importance to the CARAS organization. As it relates to COVID-19, we have been closely monitoring the position of the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and other experts within our federal, provincial and municipal governing bodies.
“Based on the numerous consultations of relevant authorities, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the risks associated with COVID-19 remain low for Canada and Canadian travellers.
“As such, we are proceeding as planned with The 49th annual Juno Awards Broadcast and Juno Week activities, scheduled to take place in Saskatoon, from March 9-15, 2020. We will continue to monitor developments and will act accordingly and advise if the situation changes.”
