We can ALL help fight COVID-19 locally
These are unprecedented times and our federal, provincial and municipal governments are all working extremely hard to manage this pandemic through strong leadership, financial relief, effective and timely mass communication, and very clear guidance on how to reduce the spread of Covid-19.
Our heroes, now more than ever, are our doctors, nurses, health care workers, para-medics, police officers, fire fighters, but in this battle against an invisible foe our local heroes have joined the fight. Our incredible front line local heroes include cashiers, clerks, truckers, delivery staff, cooks, and the list goes on and on. Regular folk, our neighbours and friends, who are staying at work and doing an absolutely incredible job on behalf of the rest of us.
Each of us has the power to help support every one of these incredible people by doing our part to prevent the spread of Covid-19. There are many ways to rob Covid-19 of further opportunities to spread by following the advice of our local public health authority. Key is to not touch your eyes, nose or mouth, washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoiding close contact with people who are sick and practice social distancing, coughing and sneezing into your sleeve and not your hands and avoiding non-essential outing except for essentials.
We can stop the spread of Covid -19 by doing whatever is possible to eliminate, at every opportunity, Covid-19's ability to spread. Social distancing and reducing interaction with others is critical to preventing it's spread and each time we don't venture out eliminates another opportunity for Covid-19's to infect.
Its understood that we must protect our most vulnerable elderly and help them stay self-isolated without any undue hardships. To this end I am working with our local Elmvale Foodland owner Ryan Reynolds and I will be delivering grocery orders to our most vulnerable elderly so they are able to remain safe at home. Here in Elmvale our local Foodland, 14 Yonge St N ( Ryan & Amanda Reynolds), as do many others grocers, take "call in orders" for groceries ( 705-322-2261 ) as well as email orders ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).The Elmvale Foodland asks that you email your order/list if at all possible so available staff can focus on filling orders. Prepared orders can then be picked up curbside once the order has been filled, or may be delivered by a 3rd party for a fee. ....
