A NEW WAY
I find myself saying this often, even though I am unsure of what the new way will be.
As we enter a new season of school, sports activities and work I understand that there are a lot of unanswered questions. I want to encourage all of us to learn, ask the questions and work together. I am proud to say that we as a city have come together, finding opportunities, showing compassion and caring, strengthening our community.
Face coverings are now mandatory in all enclosed public spaces. There are exceptions – children under the age of 12, persons with a medical condition/disability which inhibits their ability to wear a covering, receiving services involving the face, consuming food or drink, actively engaging in an athletic or fitness activity and any emergency or medical purpose. This does not replace the importance of continuing the need for 2 metre distancing and washing of hands. I know it is challenging and difficult, and we would all like to move on. Unfortunately, complacency will erase the gains we have made to keep our region safe as we move into cooler weather.
On another issue I can provide an update to the Gypsy Moth infestation that we have seen in our area. I will be working with staff in the next couple of months as to how the plan will look like for next spring. City staff are now reviewing the defoliation survey that was undertaken in July and are planning the egg mass survey for this October. Once the plan has been developed, we will be informing the communities that have been affected in London.
I look forward to hearing from you and encourage you to contact me at email@example.com or 226-927-0439. You can check the Contact Anna page to discuss your concerns, issues or what’s happening in your area.
STAY SAFE and STAY STRONG,
