In light of evolving concerns related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS) has decided to postpone their midterm Policy Conference, which was scheduled for March 16-17 in Saskatoon.
“Our goal is to help reduce the potential spread of infection amongst our members and the general public,” says APAS President Todd Lewis. “Our members would have been traveling from small communities across the province for this event, and we want to minimize the potential spread of infection as much as possible.”
The decision was made in the context of other large-scale events in the province being canceled due to concerns over the potential spread of COVID-19.
Other APAS operations are continuing normally.
