COVID-19 Updates – May 22, 2020

 

I had the pleasure of attending the re-opening of the Food Bank at 2743 Victoria Park Ave and giving free donated PPE (face masks) to the residents   

There will be another Teleconference next Friday May 29, 2020 7:00 pm on Families coping with COVID-19 also we will be giving free donated facemasks and hand sanitizers again next weekend keep tuned for details.

The weather this weekend looks promising, I encourage people to get outdoors and get some exercise, but please practice physical distancing.

Over the last three days we have seen an increase in our local case numbers – however today’s data can reflect transmission for as long as two weeks ago or more. People may have acquired the virus during events where people typically spend time together like Mother’s Day.

We all need to be careful as we move forward so we don’t find ourselves in a position where we have to go back.

Reminder – Steeles Ave Closure Friday, May 29th (8:00 PM) until Monday, June 1st (6:00 AM)

Metrolinx is making major infrastructure improvements to the Agincourt and Milliken GO stations. This work includes the construction of new grade-separated rail and pedestrian bridges at the existing Steeles  Avenue  East  at-grade rail   crossing   between  Kennedy Road and  Midland  Avenue. It also includes a new  road  underpass  on Steeles Avenue East below  the  railway  corridor.

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • There will be a full closure of Steeles Avenue East between Redlea Avenue and Old Kennedy Road/Silver Star Boulevard to prepare for the temporary detour road.
  • The closure will begin on Friday, May 29th (8:00 PM) until Monday, June 1st (6:00 AM)
  • Please watch for road signs directing you to alternate routes.
  • On June 1st, traffic will shift to the temporary detour road north of Steeles Avenue East between Redlea Avenue and Silver Star Boulevard. The temporary detour road will be in place until late 2021.
  • This work will allow crews to build the new underpass and pedestrian bridge at Steeles Avenue East while maintaining traffic flow.

我很高兴出席了2743 Victoria Park Avenue 食品银行的重开日并向居民派发了免费个人防护装备(口罩)。


另一个有关协助家庭应付COVID—19疫情的电话会议将在下星期五(2020年5月29日)举行。另外,我们将在下周末再次派发免费口罩和洗手液。敬请留意我们的活动。

这个周末的天气将会十分和暖和晴朗。我鼓励各位外出运动和同时谨记保持社交距离。
