SCUGOG: Scugog Mayor Bobbie Drew is calling on residents to act cautiously as a second wave of COVID-19 looms in Ontario.
At a meeting on Monday, September 28th, Mayor Drew asked people to take the ongoing pandemic seriously.
“If you don’t need to go out, stay at home as much as possible. This is really serious. Wear a mask, wash your hands. We all know these things. We need to comply,” she emphasized.
In addition, the mayor asked residents to only go out for necessities and to “keep in small groups, make your bubble smaller if possible.”
Ward 1 Councillor Ian McDougall was also concerned about the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in the province.
“I met some individuals on the weekend who were visibly ill and out in public. This is not acceptable,” he stated, adding, if people do not feel well, they should stay home.
