More than one year ago, when the COVID-19 pandemic started, the Mill Woods Mosaic went online, after this multicultural community newspaper had been printed monthly since 2008. One year later, I am happy to report that the Mill Woods Mosaic is still alive and kicking, thanks to our loyal advertisers and readers who have continued to support this local publication. 2020 was a tough year for many of us who have lost their jobs and businesses and had to adjust to online learning or working. The worst part is that, to date, more than 231,000 Albertans were infected, and more than 2.200 have lost their lives, due to the virus.
But now, there is light at the end of the tunnel, because about 70 % of eligible Albertans have already received their first dose of vaccine, and 20 % are already fully vaccinated. Hopefully, in July we will be able to move into Stage 3 of the province’s reopening plan, and many restrictions can be lifted. But we still have to be careful, should avoid large gatherings and continue to be vigilant, wear masks and keep physical dis- tance, because we are not yet there. Only when 70 % of Albertans will be fully vaccinated, we will be able to breathe a sigh of relief.
Stay safe and healthy!
