In the midst of all this craziness surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak, we thought we would check in on our Krew to see how everyone is holding up and to get their 2 cents on the global situation. Here is what one of our athletes, Brayden Barrett-Hay, had to say
"This Corona outbreak has been quite scary! I feel like its being blown a bit out of proportion but that we still need to be prepared and put a hold on travel to delay the outbreak in order for them to discover a vaccine. I was down in California planning to spend the week getting some practice for upcoming contests, after just driving across the states. While I was in Santa Clara and Santa Cruz it became a state of emergency. At first i wasn't too concerned, but then Trump began closing travel, meaning people were getting trapped where they are. Being a Canadian having free health care I was instantly a bit on edge, I felt it might be time to get home! Then sporting events, concerts, or anything with a crowd worldwide began being canceled. Hearing this really worried me, as I was about a 18 hour drive away from being back in Canada and heard rumors of our borders closing. Next morning I packed up my car and hit the road! I literally pined it, with stops it took me about 20 hours to be back in Canada and at my sisters place. I was quite nervous to cross the border with what I was reading about 14 day quarantines for people traveling out of country. I guess we just missed that, they just asked where we had been and if we felt sick! Easily back in Canada!
