We must slow the spread of COVID-19 and as individuals, do everything we can to prevent the spread and "flatten the curve". Because of this pandemic, events are cancelled, schools and businesses are closed or have limited services and we must practice physical distancing with anyone outside our home.

As a community, we can still stay connected. Please call your neighbours and family. Stay healthy, go outside for some fresh air, go for a walk or create a special outdoor adventure. Just please practice physical distancing. Please look after one another and let's do what we can to stay connected while staying safe and healthy.
