COVID-19 Updates – June 18, 2020

Today, we surpassed 1000 deaths from COVID-19 in Toronto. My deepest condolences go to the loved ones of the deceased.  I join you in wishing the people that are going through COVID-19 at the present a quick recovery.

I want to remind everyone that we must remain vigilant and maintain good health practices. COVID-19 is still with us.

Aside from making masks mandatory on their properties and vehicles, the TTC is also committed towards providing 1 million face masks to commuters. I encourage everyone taking transit to practice good hygiene and make use of these masks once distribution begins.

Stay safe, and stay healthy.

Mandatory face masks in public – Yes or No

City of Toronto staff will be presenting a report to the June meeting of City Council with respect to whether or not wearing a face mask should be mandatory when a person is out in public.  I am asking you to express your views on this very important issue.  I look forward to hearing your views.  To express your views, please click here
