Message from the Mayor

Yesterday, the Provincial Government announced the extension of the Declaration of Emergency until May 12 in order to continue the fight against COVID-19. 

Like most people across Ontario, the residents of Middlesex Centre have continued to stay home and to observe physical distancing to limit the community spread of the illness -- and it seems to be working.

I want to applaud the efforts of all of you in helping to stop the spread, and to protect the health of others! It’s been a huge adjustment for individuals, families, farms and businesses -- and quite stressful -- but your efforts are making an impact.

Thank-you for your discipline, perseverance, kindness and general good humour. With some luck, the next 28-day period will show even more dramatic results, and we can start looking forward to a wonderful summer!

Stay safe and be healthy,
Aina

Mayor Aina DeViet, Middlesex Centre
