Following videos posted on social media showing people dancing and drinking on Woodbine Beach in close proximity, with no masks and social distancing rules being ignored the city’s Medical Officer of Health Dr. Eileen de Villa told CityNews while people are encouraged to go out and enjoy the nice weather, they must continue to do so safely as “COVID-19 continues to circulate our city. ”
“This means staying home if you are sick, maintaining a physical distance of six feet from others, wearing a cloth mask especially when we can’t consistently be six feet from others, and washing our hands often. I also strongly recommend wearing a cloth mask in all indoor public spaces to protect others from your germs. This will continue to be our new reality as we live with COVID-19,” she said in a statement.
