COVID-19 Updates – May 19, 2020
Today is the first day of easing retail restrictions by the Province. While I know that many are eager to go back to work, visit stores and resume recreation activities, I encourage you to be cautious and take measures to protect yourself and others. When around and about please exercise social distancing and wear a face mask. Being careful now will help us reduce the spread and support the reopening of the City.
Beware of Home Invasions!
During this difficult time, I have been receiving reports of attempted home invasions. Please stay vigilant and ensure that your property is secure both when you are on and off-premises. Camera surveillance for your property is strongly recommended.
Tendercare PPE Donation
Yesterday, I was able to distribute over 4,500 free face masks to Tendercare 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. Read more..

COVID-19每日更新 – 2020年5月19日
今天是省政府放宽零售限制的第一天。 虽然许多人都渴望能够返回工作岗位，光顾商店和恢复娱乐活动，但我建议各位继续保持谨慎和采取保护自己和他人的措施。 因此请继续保持社交距离和戴上口罩，以协助我们都市的重启计划。
我昨天向恒福护理员的个人护理员 (PSW) 免费分发了4,500多个口罩。 每位PSW均得到50个口罩的捐赠。个人护理员在疫情期间一直在前线照顾著院舍的长者和在COVID-19疫情期间最无法照顾自己的人。
我借此感谢Bridlewood Mall为我们捐赠口罩。他们的慷慨捐赠保障了我们区一众居民的安全和健康。更多详情请阅: 点击这里
