In most parts of Canada, the summer is finished with us. It's time to start heading indoors and get snug as a bug-in-a-rug. It's also time for the coronavirus to get a grip on us as we gather inside. It's NOT back-to-normal, and it's NOT business as usual. The coronavirus is as active as ever, as infectious as ever and no less debilitating than it was in March.
Our understanding of this virus is evolving. Not everything is known about its behaviour and some aspects may even prove unknowable. Keep yourself informed.
Relative to some countries, Canada has done a good job of limiting the spread of infection. We followed the science and we poured a lot of time, energy and money into our communal effort. Many Canadians have made major sacrifices, lost their jobs, went into debt, cancelled school plans, declared bankruptcy or closed their businesses. Don't let those efforts be in vain. We must not let our guard down too soon or the virus will have another go at us.
You know the drill;
Limit social exposure
Minimize non-urgent travel
Take public transit during off-hours, if possible
Don't shake hands or hug outside your 'bubble'
Limit grocery shopping to once per week, if possible
Don't gather in large groups, especially indoors
- Wear a face covering if you can't maintain social distancing
- Take extra care around high-risk individuals
And for crying-out-loud, wash your hands!
