Due to the unprecedented circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lethbridge and District Exhibition has enacted the temporary layoff of 80 per cent of its full-time workforce as of March 31.
Along with the public gathering facilities, Exhibition Park announced Wednesday they were faced with an abrupt halt to all public on-site activities, and as a result, the decision has been made to undertake this temporary reduction.
In addition to the staff reduction, Exhibition Park has also advised that the spring edition of the Home & Garden Trade Show for 2020 has been cancelled.
“While these are extremely difficult decisions, they are required measures in our effort to assist in slowing the spread of COVID-19,” said Rudy Friesen, Exhibition Park CEO. “We trust that, as indicated, the layoffs are a temporary measure, and that in the near future we, along with our community, are able to return to more normal business operations.”
In a release, Exhibition Park says they understand that the pandemic is resulting in an ever-changing situation and will continue to provide updates regarding operations at Exhibition Park as they become available. All general public and customer inquiries can contact through exhibitionpark.ca.
