A COVID 19 message from our ward councillor

I hope you are all well and staying safe!

Ottawa Public Health has been busy keeping residents across the city as safe as possible by continuously updating the measures put in place to stop the spread (planking the curve) of COVID-19. Please see the attached 'Letter to Community Associations' for the latest updates.

Additionally, the need for resources is growing rapidly and access to those resources has been challenging for a variety of reasons. The seemingly simple act of asking for help can be stressful for many and not knowing where to turn may keep help out of reach.

Our Human Needs Taskforce is coordinating with reliable and credible support organizations within the municipality.

The goal, is to make getting help less stressful.

I have attached the list of key contacts provided by the Taskforce team as well. Please share it with your communities via social media, email or any other means. As a group, we can keep more of our residents safe
