More than 18 months ago, when the COVID-19 pan demic started, the Mill Woods Mosaic went online, after this multicultural com munity newspaper had been printed monthly since 2008. A year and a half 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 sup port 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 272,000 Albertans were infected, and 2.471 have lost their lives, due to the virus.
Now, there is light at the end of the tunnel, because more than 60 % of all people in Alberta are already fully vaccinated, but that is not good enough, because it means that more than one million Albertans are not yet fully vaccinated which is still a very large number. Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw has admitted that it was a mistake to declare Alberta “Open for Summer” in July, because since then, the num ber of new cases has climbed dramatically with more than 1,000 new cases every day since Sept. 1. So, we are not out of the woods yet and still have to be vigilant.
Stay safe and healthy!
