COVID-19 Updates – May 15, 2020


Face Mask delivery delay by Canada Post
mail due to COVID-19

For those who were unable to pick up your free face masks, please be advised that they have been mailed to you.  Unfortunately, Canada Post is experiencing delays due to the important safety measures they have implemented their processing facilities.  For further information from Canada Post, please click here.

Face Mask Distribution to Shepherd Village Personal Support Workers

Today, I was able to distribute over 6,000 free face masks to Shepherd Village Personal Support Workers (PSWs). Every PSW received 50 free donated masks.

Personal Support Workers are on the front line caring for our loved ones and those who are least able to care for themselves during the COVID-19 crisis.

I want to thank Bridlewood Mall for their kind donation of masks.  Their generosity is helping keep the people of Scarborough-Agincourt safe and healthy.
