Parade and Festivities: Saturday, March 14, 2020
There is no intention on our part to overreact to the Coronavirus/COVID-19. However, given Governor Whitmers State of Emergency Declaration and Michigan Department of Health & Human Services recommendations for large gatherings regarding the Coronavirus / COVID-19, we have decided to cancel the St. Patricks Day Parade scheduled for this Saturday March 14, 2020.
Governor Whitmer said, "Community mitigation strategies are designed to be implemented at the individual, organizational, and community levels. They apply to businesses, workplaces, schools, community organizations, health care institutions, and individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and health profiles; everyone has an important role to play."
Our goal at the chamber is to make Grand Ledge a great place to live and do business and that includes doing the best to protect citizens and respect several corporate policies.
We hope that with your help, we can mitigate the spread of this virus. Please follow the recommendations to wash your hands, stay home when you are sick, and practice good hygiene.
Please review the CDC website to learn steps to stop the spread of Coronavirus / COVID-19 and follow their travel advice: www.CDC.gov.
The Chamber welcomes all Chamber members, local businesses, civic organizations, churches, scouting groups, schools, and clubs to show their community spirit by participating in the parade.
