Due to the increasing case numbers, on Tuesday, November 24, the Provincial government announced new measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. These measures will be in place for at least three weeks with the potential of staying in place longer. The below table outlines all measures, as they are effective immediately:

New COVID-19 Measures 

Staying apart is hard for a tight-knit community like ours, but by maintaining our distance we are making our community stronger and stopping the spread of COVID-19. Let’s take care of each other by following the new temporary health safety measures.

If you are sick and experiencing symptoms of the flu or COVID-19, stay home and book a test online.

CRA and COVID-19

Have you received financial support during COVID-19? We want to remind everyone to file your 2019 tax return if you haven’t yet done so. Filing your return ensures you receive the right benefit amounts and payments beyond September 2020.

If your tax return is not assessed by early September, your payments will stop in October 2020 and you may have to repay the amounts your received since July 2020.

Find a free tax clinic in your area. You will be able to enter your community information to see if there are services available in your area.

Masks


We have been getting several requests from citizens asking for masks and we understand why, things feel scary right now. Health experts ask that you stay at home. If you are home, you do not need a mask.

While there is changing evidence and support for self-made masks, Public Health Experts primarily recommend masks for those who are sick or immunocompromised who must leave their home and go to hospital for care. Wearing a mask when you are not ill may give a false sense of security. There is a potential risk of infection with improper mask use and disposal.

Stay home and stay safe!

Beware of scammers!


Beware of scammers! If an offer of cash or free devices comes up due to the current pandemic, it is probably too good to be true. This Global News article has more tips on avoiding scams.
