The vast majority of Hamiltonians have come together by staying apart. The practice of self-isolation and physical distancing of 2 metres (6 feet) makes a difference. Thank you for heeding the advice of Public Health. Please continue to follow the advised protocols.
We have watched as communities have worked collaboratively to assist those who are not in a position to stock up on resources or access basic needs because of additional challenges. Neighbours are reaching out to neighbours through phone calls and social media, and wider communities who have mobilised overnight to serve vulnerable populations.
Caremongering Hamilton is an example of that quick mobilisation. It is a grassroots group lead by the Disability Justice Network of Ontario and Hamilton Student Mobilization Network. The goal is to help those with economic, social, health and mobility challenges as measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The group operates through Facebook and welcomes those in need and those who can volunteer or financially support the work. See the about section on their Facebook account or read them in The Spec, CBC Hamilton and the Washington Post.
To those essential workers in healthcare, grocery, waste collection, logistics, and so many others - thank you seems too small a word for the depth of gratitude we all feel towards each of you, none-the-less, THANK YOU!
Wishing you all health and safety.
