August 2020 Newsletter
Hello Ward 14. I am going to keep my message for this month fairly simple. There is one thing that we can all do to help our recovery continue through the fall, and that is to focus on mitigating the spread of COVID-19. The actions we must take are simple too, and we should all be aware of them by now. Distancing when possible, wearing masks when possible, washing hands frequently, and using hand sanitizer when we cannot will all go a long way to keeping loved ones safe, and keeping the economy running.
If you need information calgary.ca/covid19 is the place to find City of Calgary information, alberta.ca/covid19 is the place to find Provincial information, and canada.ca/covid19 is the place for Federal info. Here is something for families:
Ready Squad talks Covid-19 safety
Calgary families will be going back to school in September with Covid-19 safety guidelines in place. The City of Calgary’s Emergency Management Agency has developed a family friendly toolkit to provide positive and fun activities to help build resilience for children by encouraging conversation and understanding of the importance of good hygiene and physical distancing for when they go back to school. Talking with your kids, especially during stressful times ensures your children have the skills to cope with change ahead. These activities can provide the tools for kids to feel confident going back to school; and continue to add to the successful response in the Province.
Go to calgary.ca/readysquad to find more information, and stay tuned on social media for more fun activities and information.
