COVID-19 Update, March 29

Despite these uncertain times, I hope you are all finding moments to connect with friends and loved ones (virtually and/or at a distance of course!).

The Government of Canada has indicated that we are starting to see a positive impact of the social distancing efforts of Canadians in some areas, however Canadians need to avoid complacency and continue to stay home, particularly if they feel symptoms of any respiratory illness, to flatten the curve. We are at a critical juncture in our COVID-19 response efforts, and your continued cooperation is needed.

COVID-19 Update, March 27

Thank you to everyone who continues the hard work of physical and social distancing! Each and every one of us taking these measures seriously ensures that we do not put our family, friends and others at risk. I ask you to also please urge others to do the same. Together, we can fight COVID-19, flatten the curve and save lives.

COVID-19 Update, March 26

When our world changes this drastically, this fast, the toll on our mental health can be huge. I want you to know that it is okay if you are feeling sad, scared or lonely right now. It is stressful when we are bombarded by news, when our income and livelihood are threatened, and when we don’t know when this will end. So much has changed in the last several weeks, and know that you are not alone during this challenging time.

 

COVID-19 Update, March 25

The pace of change surrounding our response to COVID-19 continues unabated. The challenges we face are many, and I want to thank all the people from frontline healthcare workers, the grocery store attendants, to the cleaning staff and government social policy makers who are all working hard to keep us all safe.

COVID-19 Update, March 24

I continue to be heartened by the number of people who are reaching out to my office to offer their volunteer time, share resources and speak kindly about their neighbours. Our community is resilient and strong, always rising to the occasion to help each other in times of need. Thank you for your generosity and kindness during these challenging times!
