COVID-19 Updates – March 28, 2020
During this difficult time, in order to lift up spirits and to show appreciation for our frontline, healthcare and essential workers, some residents of Ward 22 Scarborough-Agincourt will be singing ‘O Canada’ outside on their balconies at 12:00 PM on Sunday, March 29th. Community members are invited to join in.
COVID-19 Updates – March 27 2020
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in Toronto, our City would not have been able to continue functioning without our frontline, healthcare and essential services workers. At this time, I would like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK-YOU to these workers. We greatly appreciate all your efforts in keeping Toronto residents healthy, safe and well supplied.

Housing, Income and Program Support
How are people experiencing homeless being assisted to find permanent housing during COVID-19?
Please see the City’s March 24 news release for details. As an additional measure, the City is working with Toronto Community Housing (TCH) on a Rapid Housing initiative to identify vacant units that can be made available immediately to particularly vulnerable populations that are currently shelter clients on the waiting list for housing.
Use the Ministry of Health’s self-assessment to help determine if you need to seek care.
If you’re having difficulty breathing or experiencing other severe symptoms, call 911.
Always call your health care provider before visiting.
I want to thank those of you who have reached out and offered to help someone in need in our community. If you are in need of assistance with picking up groceries and essentials, please do not hesitate to reach out. I can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 416 392 1374.
Are parks closed?
No. Parks remain open on the advice of Toronto Public Health. Residents are reminded to engage in safe physical distancing of at least two metres apart from each other while in a park.
