Message from Mayor Frank Campion

ON COVID-19

– August 6, 2020

 

Support Welland’s Local Businesses

The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly affected every member of our community including local businesses, restaurants as well as our local economy.

With Welland now in Stage 3 most businesses and restaurants are re-emerging and opening their doors again. The City of Welland is doing everything it can to support Welland’s business community - many who have been dealing with very challenging times due to the pandemic.

These businesses are your local service and product providers, employers and great community partners. I am asking all Welland residents and visitors to take advantage of all they have to offer. When possible buy locally, go to local restaurants and other businesses. They are providing a safe environment for you to shop and dine out.

It is up to you to follow the rules of social distancing, hand washing and wearing a mask or face covering when required, staying home if displaying symptoms or having been in close contact with cases of COVID-19. A two-metre distance must be maintained at all gatherings – indoor gatherings of 50 people and 100 people for outdoor gatherings.

Businesses and customers, working together in following the rules results in a safe and enjoyable experience for all. Let’s continue to work together and support one another.

Stay safe and healthy.

Please visit the City of Welland websitewww.welland.ca for information on Welland Recovery – Moving Beyond COVID. Also visit the Niagara Region website http://www.niagararegion.ca/covid19for information on COVID-19 and the new Face Coverings By-law.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

Sincerely, Mayor Frank Campion
