TCU Place, Saskatoon’s Arts and Convention Centre is working closely with industry partners to monitor developments relating to COVID-19 and taking direction from the City of Saskatoon, provincial, Canadian and global health authorities.
As a precautionary measure in response to the spread of COVID-19, the Government of Saskatchewan has mandated that all gatherings of over 250 attendees cannot take place until further notice. On March 20, this limit was revised to ban gatherings of more than 25 persons. The current maximum is 10 persons. They have also announced other restrictions to foreign travel and recommended social distancing practices.
The TCU Place Board of Directors, management, and City of Saskatoon made the decision to temporarily close our facility to the public, effective Wednesday March 18, 2020. This decision was made in the interest of public safety, employee safety, and the long-term sustainability of the facility. We will review the building closure daily to assess the reopening.
