The provincial lockdown continues as well as the stay-at-home order. As an aside, yesterday speaking with a man who has recovered from COVID-19, and is continuing weeks later to deal with the ramifications of this virus it really drove home just how serious this virus is and how dangerous it can be. Keep your social distancing, keep your social bubbles going, keep on the hand-washing and hand-sanitizing.

Being kind and being respectful makes a real difference. You can do this, remember, “You’re Beautiful”.
