Happy Tuesday, Artscape community! The Covid Task Force and the Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Committee want to bring a joint message to everyone. Late last Friday, The ON government announced new restrictions around the Stay-at-Home order. The weekend also bought fierce criticism of some of those restrictions, and the Government rolled back the closure of playgrounds. Some good vaccine news came Sunday when they announced that the AstraZeneca vaccine would be available for people 40 years and older, starting Tuesday, April 20; details here.
