Thunder Bay – WEATHER – As we near the end of April, heading into May temperatures are going to warm up.

This presents the opportunity to get outside more, get more active, perhaps even lose some of that COVID-19 weight that many have found.

It remains important to continue the hard things though. Don’t let lower COVID-19 numbers fool you. As said many times, this is a tricky virus, and the mutated variants are now rampant in the city.

Keep in your social bubble, keep practicing kindness, respect and take advantage of everything to learn new skills and things. We know you can! “You’re Beautiful”.
