We will continue to monitor the situation and Toronto Public Health (TPH) recommendations and will keep community members updated regarding any developments. If anything changes, we will let everyone know as soon as possible.

We also encourage everyone to look after their mental health in these uncertain times.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these issues in a rapidly changing environment. Overall, we hope to keep our community members healthy and we thank you all for your part in helping to do so! Take care of yourselves and each other.
