From today’s statement:
We expect vaccines to be ready in the next few weeks, with the UK leading the charge with the approval of a vaccine today.
We must follow provincial health orders, these are in place to stop the spread of the virus. It spreads easily and quickly. More than ever, please stay local. Avoid public places where people mix with others. Do not travel unless it is essential for work or for medical care.
All sports events continue to be prohibited until at least Dec 7.
By all means, get outside every day, go for walks with people in your immediate family.
