We are reaching out today with an update on COVID-19 and its potential impact on the people in the industry and The AFC’s services.
We are tracking updates every day as the situation develops and following the lead and recommendations of public health authorities to ensure safe working environments and practices. At this time, we are operating primarily via email and phone.
It is possible that there will be an increased demand for The AFC’s services in the coming weeks as folks in the industry may have to deal with job cancellations/lost income due to COVID-19. Here are some key points that you can communicate to your constituents when they inquire about available support and resources and you refer them to The AFC:
If you receive information about show/work cancellations, postponements, or other significant developments in the industry due to COVID-19, please send them our way – this would be very helpful in managing the ever-changing situation around the pandemic.
The AFC status updates, any changes to our services, and useful information about COVID-19 can be found here: afchelps.ca/news/covid-19-update. Please contact us if you have any questions about this message.
Thank you all very much and stay safe.
