From today’s statement:
“As we acknowledge World AIDS Day and celebrate this Day of Giving, today is a day for kindness, compassion and giving back, despite the obstacles of COVID-19.
“It is a time for all of us to pause, to think about the many people throughout our province, our nation and the world who have been impacted by COVID-19 and other global epidemics. It is also a time to think about what we can do to make a difference.
“Let’s be resilient in face of this surge. United and together, let’s make an impact today through our own personal actions.
“Without exception, follow the provincial health officer’s orders in place. Remember that events, which refer to anything that gathers people together – whether on a one-time, regular or irregular basis – are not allowed for now. This includes religious, cultural or community events. Do not gather at home with anyone other than your household or core bubble.
“Let’s make today a day to slow community transmission and continue to protect everyone in our province.”
