Mayor issues statement on new COVID-19 cases


If you see someone who is not following public health advice, Provenzano wants you to “talk to them, kindly and honestly”

Mayor Christian Provenzano took time at the start of tonight’s city council meeting to talk about last night’s announcement of eight new local cases of COVID-19.“I think this is really a wake-up call for all of us,” the mayor said.

“Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma did a very good job when this pandemic began, following public health advice.

“Eight months later, it becomes really difficult to follow this advice and continue to commit to it. ”

“Naturally, many of us are becoming anxious to see how our lives have been adjusted and the sacrifices we have had to make. ”

“During these times, it is more critical than ever that we continue to follow public health advice.”

“We are seeing that the virus is really increasing in numbers in some parts of the world, in parts of Canada, the United States and Ontario. ”

“We have no reason to expect this not to happen again in our community. ”

“If we want to keep our community safe, if we want to keep our kids safe in their school, their daycare, our safe seniors, all the people we love and care for who are in our homes. retirement, our family and friends, and our community at large, the best way we can all do is that we need all of you to keep COVID out of our community, and from spreading in our community. ”

“The only way to do this is to follow public health advice. ”

“I want to take this opportunity to ask our community to re-engage on the advice of Algoma Public Health. ”

“Do what you can to follow the advice of Algoma Public Health and to encourage those around you to follow the advice of Algoma Public Health. ”

“If you see people who don’t follow him, please talk to them kindly and honestly and ask them to follow him. ”

“Let’s also take the time to be patient with each other and encourage each other through these difficult times. ”

“I have tremendous confidence in our community and am sure we can get back on track, but we need to commit to following the advice of Algoma Public Health.
