The Arts Rendezvous Committee met in early March to consider the possibility of holding an edition in 2021. After discussion, the committee decided to postpone the next edition of the Papineauville Arts Rendezvous until 2022 for the following reasons:
- While the provincial government is optimistic about the resolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, too many factors, such as variants, can cause a new outbreak of the disease.
- Although vaccination has a very good start, it is optional. In addition, the wearing of the mask and the physical distance of 2 meters remains in force until further notice.
- As an organization, we need to ensure that government public health guidelines are applied on the site. The organizing committee and its volunteers are not train as first responders to resolve problems that may arise on the site for non-compliance with Quebec public health guidelines.
- Finally, the segment of the population over 60 that attends our activity represents 60% of all our visitors.
