COVID 19 – I keep my distance!

Pointe-Claire Mayor John Belvedere is proud to announce a new campaign for the City’s youth: I keep my distance!

“This campaign reminds young people to practise physical distancing in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19. It’s important that they protect themselves, their family and friends by keeping two metres apart from each other at all times,” the mayor explains.

The campaign visuals use various playful objects to illustrate the distance required to protect ourselves; for example, twenty mobile phones roughly equals a distance of two metres. Signs will be displayed at various popular locations throughout the city that are frequented by young people, such as the skatepark, the aquatic centre, the library, and so on.

The campaign will also take place on the City’s social media platforms. Everyone is invited to share the animated clips that will be posted on Instagram and Facebook. Frames for Facebook profile images will also be available so that citizens can help promote the campaign.

“Let’s encourage our youth to be actively involved, and let’s all continue to follow the instructions by limiting our travel, keeping two metres apart from others we come across, and washing our hands often,” Mr. Belvedere concludes.
