Covid-19 and Vaccine Updates:

The latest from Ottawa Public Health 

  • “I would like to ask community members to think about people you know who may be struggling, especially parents who need a break. […] Give them a call or send a text. Perhaps offer to watch their children in a park or backyard, even for a few hours. Your small act of kindness could be someone’s lifeline.” Read the latest statement from Dr. Vera Etches.(link is external)
  • Until enough people are immunized against COVID-19, please keep up with COVID Wise(link is external) public health guidelines to protect yourself and others. Even those who have received a vaccine will need to continue to wear a mask, stay home and get tested when sick, and stay two metres apart from those living outside your household.
