Message from the Mayor May 3, 2020

Message from the Mayor May 3, 2020 Hi Tom Bain, here, Mayor of the Town of Lakeshore. I certainly want to express what a great job our local BIA is doing through this pandemic. Our small businesses are so important to the economy, and we as residents need to support them during these tough times. Many residents have been participating in the takeout Tuesday promotion that is happening in Windsor-Essex. We should also be connecting with these local businesses, giving them our support, and purchasing from them. By doing this we are really in effect, not only supporting our municipality, we are helping to boost the economy for the entire area, and in turn we are helping to create new jobs and new opportunities. This is important when we look at those levels of unemployment in the area, especially when we look at our youth coming up into the workforce looking for job experience.

Act like your life and your loved ones' lives depend on what you do, because it does. Blair Speaks about Covid-19   March 14, 2020   So, yeah, I used to be a real-live microbiologist who pipetted live virus stocks into cell culture in a hood and worked with radioactive isotopes and everything. Won't go into it here. That's one of my pictures of a cell-mash that I took through a laser microscope. Pretty. ———-> Okay, so let's talk about Covid-19, this piece of crap virus that's hitting the whole world in a pandemic right now. I'm sorry that I didn't write before. Everything has been so awful. I will try to tell you what I know for sure. First, just general advice. If you're not sick already, please, for the love of God and all that is holy, stay home. Stay isolated. Stay in for as long as you can. Every additional day that you can stay in your own place and not get infected is an additional day that the medical people can deal with the pandemic before you become a part of it. If you can stay in for a week before…
