COVID-19 – The mayor is calling for social distancing and local shopping

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, thanks the citizens for their cooperation in following the rules of social distancing and avoiding gatherings in order to limit the spread of the coronavirus. He is also calling on the community to do their shopping locally.

“Let’s take advantage of the beautiful spring weather to get a little air while complying with Public Health guidelines and keeping a distance of two metres from each other. To save lives, yours as well as those of your loved ones, avoid any form of gathering. The rest of the time, stay home,” said the mayor of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere.

Citizens are asked to encourage the local grocery stores, pharmacies and small shops that are still open. While restaurant dining rooms will be closed as of midnight, tonight, many will add a take-out service and delivery. Find out more from these restaurants.

“During this exceptional and difficult period, if we need to shop, we should purchase supplies from local businesses as much as possible. In addition to encouraging our merchants, this will limit our movements and allow us to stay close to home. All of the sacrifices we are making now are critical to saving lives,” said the mayor.
