Junos performers in Saskatoon disappointed, but understand coronavirus cancellation

The 2020 Juno Awards presented a huge opportunity for Saskatoon band Too Soon Monsoon.

The performers had shows lined up as part Juno Week, hoping to make some new fans and build on two EPs and a record. The festivities were called off the same day as Saskatchewan announced its first presumptive case of the novel coronavirus.

Concerned about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:

Health officials say the risk is very low for Canadians, but they caution against travel to affected areas (a list can be found here). If you do travel to these places, they recommend you self-monitor to see whether you develop symptoms and if you do, to contact public health authorities.

Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing – very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease.

To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. And if you get sick, stay at home.
