Burlington COVID-19 Task Force Meeting 13

Burlington COVID Task Force

Earlier today we held the 13th meeting of the Burlington COVID-19 Task Force as we see only 6 active cases of COVID-19 in Burlington right now. We have come a long way in the past five months and we hope to see these amazing results of low cases and community responsibility continue.

Our meeting today touched on:

    • The City’s mask bylaw adding apartments & condos, residential & business until Jan 31st
    • Business funding support recently approved by council of $250K
    • Our next public telephone town hall that will be Wednesday September 23rd and focus on the impact of back-to-school (Sept.8), any impact to new cases that is having, and actions the community may need to take. Stuart Miller of the HDSB, Pat Daly of the HCDSB, and Eric Vandewall of Joseph Brant Hospital are already confirmed to attend.

Our next meeting will be scheduled for the end of September.

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
