Mayor's Message re COVID-19
March 16, 2020 -- Lunenburg is a special place, but we are not immune to the global threat of COVID-19. I am urging all citizens to be a part of the solution to this very serious threat to human health. We need to act together to get ahead of this threat and to take individual responsibility to keep our distance from each other, giving the virus no chance to settle here.
We have closed all Town facilities to public access following the advice of our National and Provincial Public Health authorities. Although we are social beings by nature, during this very extraordinary time, we must follow the advice of health officials in maintaining safe distances from each other (roughly 2 meters or 6 feet). We need each and every one in our Town to follow this guideline as we go about living as we are able at this unprecedented time. It is within our power to stop this if we act in a coordinated and consistent way.
I know such directives are inconvenient at best and extremely difficult for some, especially our business community. I don’t ask this lightly. Stay home or close to home. Shop locally and with the greatest consideration of others. Your health and the health of your family, friends, and neighbours is at stake.
Lunenburgers are known for pulling together and supporting each other in difficult times. This is one of those times. Thank you for looking out for each other.
Mayor Rachel Bailey
Town of Lunenburg
