October 14, 2020 Council Outcomes and COVID-19 Reminders
October 14, 2020
Today, Council approved support for MississaugaGives to help make a difference in the community.
“As a Council, we are proudly supporting MississaugaGives once again this year. No matter how small the gesture, many actions can go a long way to improve the lives of others when we all take part. I encourage everyone to look at what can be done to support MississaugaGives by giving back to our community,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie.
The local campaign, MississaugaGives, encourages people to give back to their community through small donations of money or food, volunteering time or supporting a charity. As approved by Council, the City of Mississauga will lend its support though its social media channels and help raise awareness of the MississaugaGives call to action.
Mississauga’s COVID-19 Reminders and Response
In response to new provincial restrictions and recommendations from Region of Peel’s Medical Officer of Health, some of the City of Mississauga’s programs were adjusted to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
“We are continuing our recovery work and reminding people of the need to stay safe and continue to be diligent. It’s important everyone continues to follow the recommendations of our Chief Medical Officers of Health – keep social gatherings to those in your immediate household, wear face covers, wash or sanitize hands often and stay home if you are feeling unwell. It is up to all of us to protect the health of our family, friends and neighbours. With COVID-19, we depend on each other and need full cooperation for us to reduce the number of cases,” Mayor Crombie added.
