This is exactly the type of support we have been asking for at the City of Toronto. Federal dollars to acquire & convert our emergency COVID homeless hotels and buildings into permanent supportive housing solutions. Now, to get this over the finish line and build housing now.

Over the past six months, Torontonians have done their part. We listened to public health advice, adjusted our behavior, made sacrifices, & looked out for one another. But fighting COVID is a marathon, not a sprint – & we still have a long way to go. We can't let up our guard now

The reality is that COVID-19 is not going away any time soon. If we continue to work together, we can limit the spread and save lives. That's why we all need to continue to: -Watch our distance -Wear our mask -Wash our hands And take care of each other.

If we want to prevent a big second wave, we have to act now. Speed is critical. That's why the City is working with other levels of gov't to implement the following: 1. Reducing social gathering limits 2. Expanding mask requirements 3. Increasing enforcement of existing rules

The data tells us that the major factor contributing to the rise in cases in recent days is people getting together, and not practicing physical distancing or wearing a mask. Events like small weddings, birthdays, playdates, and family BBQs are putting people are risk.

COVID-19 didn’t create the housing crisis in Toronto, but it has exposed the severity of it. Our task is to not only expand shelter and housing sites to protect people during COVID, but transform these temporary spaces into permanent housing solutions.

If you get COVID you're told to self-isolate at home away from your household. For many Torontonians, the luxury of a home with multiple bedrooms & bathrooms is simply not a reality. That's why our Toronto Public Health isolation facility is so important.

There’s a lot of discussion of testing. We certainly need increased testing capacity in Ontario. But that’s not all. We need targeted testing in high-risk workplaces & neighbourhoods AND easier surveillance testing options like saliva strips. And, we needed all this yesterday.
