TORONTO – Today, Jim Karygiannis, Councillor for Ward 22, Scarborough-Agincourt, delivered donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to Mon Sheong Court senior and long term care residences in Ward 22.
The City of Toronto has, since April, been hard at work planning for the eventual restart of City services and the reopening of the economy. Last month, under the leadership of Fire Chief Matthew Pegg, General Manager of the City’s Office of Emergency Management, the Emergency Operations Centre created a “restart roadmap” to help guide the restarting of City operations and to support businesses in their safe reopening. Today’s announcement by the Province of Ontario, outlining the next phase of provincial reopening plans, supports the work the City has completed to date.
With the arrival of warmer temperatures, the City of Toronto is sharing an update on its Heat Relief Strategy for the 2020 hot weather season, in response to COVID-19, to ensure that emergency heat relief opportunities are available and accessible to those who may need them.
Today, I was able to distribute free, pre-ordered face masks and hand sanitizer to over 400 constituents, most of whom brought donations to the Salvation Army Food Bank.
I want to thank the people of Ward 22 for their generosity. The Food Bank received donations of $1,000.00 and 2,000 pounds of non-perishable food stuffs. Your generosity will help feed those in our community who have been hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis.
June 2020 Update
We welcome the opportunity to expand our ‘Bubble” during this COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time the following reminders will assist in keeping each of us healthy:
Wear a face covering when social distancing is a challenge.
Wash hands frequently.
The City of Toronto continues to safely and gradually open services and amenities for residents to enjoy this weekend, following guidance from Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health.
Today, Mayor John Tory announced that the City of Toronto, led by Toronto Public Health, is providing guidance to safely reopen restaurants for indoor and outdoor dining, and personal service settings for personal care services once provincial orders are lifted for these sectors of the economy.
