With the fall season upon us and the new school year underway we also face the arrival of flu season.

Symptoms of COVID-19 and seasonal influenza are very similar. Health experts recommend getting vaccinated against the flu. The flu vaccine will not offer any protection from COVID-19 but it is just as vital to protect yourself from the seasonal flu especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The best way to protect yourself and loved ones from COVID-19 is to follow the rules of social distancing, hand washing, wearing a mask or face covering when required, stay 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 10 people and 25 people for outdoor gatherings.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Welland residents for an incredible job in doing their part to stop the spread of COVID-19. With COVID-19 cases on the rise again we must not let our guard down. We must continue to be vigilant in protecting one another. I urge everyone to be kind and patient with each other – we will get through this together.

We all have a personal responsibility in the fight against COVID-19. Welland City Council and staff are committed to the health and safety of our residents. Please stay safe and healthy.

Here are a few links I encourage you to monitor for information:
