The City of Cornwall is trying their very best to do their part and stop the spread of COVID-19. In a recent news update, Mayor Bernadette Clement is once again asking residents to stay home and listen to public health officials.
“The message is very clear: stay home. By limiting our movements we can all keep our neighbours safe – and that includes some of the most vulnerable in our community. We recognize that people have to buy groceries and undertake other essential trips such as attending doctor’s appointments. Plan ahead and combine your trips into one or two outings a week. Send only one family member out to shop, and where possible, shop for seniors.”
We know that we can do our part and help stop the spread of the coronavirus by practicing physical distancing, wash your hands with soap and water and stay home.
If you plan on grocery shopping for yourself, for your family or your shopping for a senior, you can check out this quick guide video the City of Cornwall released on ‘grocery store etiquette.’
If you missed it, earlier this week the City extended the closure of municipal offices and recreational facilities and has closed all outdoor play structures and sport fields. On March 26 the City of Cornwall, in partnership with the United Counties of SD&G and the United Counties of Prescott-Russell, declared a state of emergency.
