Together with music makers around the world, Over The Bridge continues to follow the current developments in Canada and throughout the world the rapid global spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) with deep concern.
The pandemic is now spreading across Canada, and has deeply affected our music community. Coronavirus (COVID-19) is understandably a source of anxiety and fear for many.
Practical information on responding to the virus and mitigating its spread is available from local public health officials, as well as from the federal and provincial governments, and should be heeded.
Music makers and fans are encouraged to refer to their local government websites for the preventive measures to be followed. Concern for every person and the common good must always be paramount.
The spread of the COVID-19 virus is a moment for Over the Bridge to invite music makers and community members into our Facebook “Over The Bridge: Music Industry, Addiction and mental health peer support group”. Here you can ask questions, raise concerns, and receive emotional support from open-minded, understanding, and caring members of the music community.
