Manitobans have been tackling the challenge of COVID-19 for over a year now. We know the past year has been difficult. We’ve all had to adjust to the new normal to help keep ourselves and our loved ones safe. We’ve not seen our friends and family as much we want to. We’ve all missed out on activities and events that used to bring us together. It’s important to recognize what we’re feeling, and it’s also important to know that our collective effort has helped keep people safe and helped our health care workers by keeping case counts lower.
With thousands of people being vaccinated daily, we know that we have reason for optimism. It’s important to continue to do a bit more of what’s been working for a little longer. That means keeping contacts to a minimum and staying home as much a possible and when we enjoy our fabulous Manitoba summer outside, that we do that safely as well. With a last push of us all working together, we’ll be able to get through this.
