Editorial Comment

COVID-19 moves when people carry it. It might not be fun to hunker down, with the recent colder weather many are feeling down, practicing common sense, kindness and respect for each other is really important.

Take the time today, learn something new. Find ways to increase your brain power.

Do you have a dream? Work toward achieving it. Use the time of the stay-at-home order to make a difference in your life.

Do you feel frustrated?

We all do. You are not alone in your frustration over this virus. The pandemic has hit hard on families, students, and businesses across the city and region.

What we will ask of you, don’t let that frustration magnify in action and behaviour that could hard you or your family or friends.

Ontario is under specific rules right now, following those rules respects the people on the front lines protecting you and your family.

It might be tempting to join in protests, heck the release of frustration by howling along with others might make a short respite. It also runs the risk of causing increased spread of the virus and making it harder for our province to end the lockdown and stay-at-home orders.

Like in any boxing match the word to fighters before the battle is simple – “Protect yourself at all times”.

Do that today and each and everyday and we will get through this.
