This message is on behalf of District Governor Bala Naidoo.
District 5040 is being vigilant and closely monitoring the global outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in conjunction with Rotary International, the World Health Organization, the BC Centre for Disease Control and the provincial health authorities. 
At this time, District 5040 events and programs including RYLA South (Gibsons), the 2020 Vision District Conference (Vancouver), RYLA North (Prince George) and RYLA Lakelse (Terrace) are going ahead as scheduled until further notice. However, the trip by Kenya’s Vocation Training Team that was scheduled to visit our district in April is in the process of being cancelled or postponed. 
For those who are travelling, everyone has to examine their own insurance policy for what they do and do not have, and what their insurance provider is currently saying. 
This past week, we received notice that the Coronavirus is now considered a "known risk" by insurance companies and as such is no longer included in coverage for policies issued after March 5, even if the Canadian government subsequently issues a Level 3 or 4 Travel Advisory.
We do recognize that things can change quickly. If they do, we will adapt accordingly and keep everyone informed if anything changes.
