Case counts of COVID-19 are increasing across the province. They are also rising now in our KFL&A region which demands increased vigilance and strengthened sector-specific public health and workplace safety measures.

JMPC Update

Angela Malcolm

I’m sure we can agree that the news relating to COVID-19 has been overwhelming. This is especially true of the tragic stories coming out of Long Term Care (LTC) and retirement homes across the province. As staff working in LTC, we cannot imagine how isolating and helpless you must feel not being able to visit your loved one at the John M Parrott Centre (JMPC). 

This is an unprecedented time in history and we are all in this together.

Remembrance Day ceremonies and events are not immune to COVID-19 and will be different this year. The National Ceremony Committee in Ottawa is discouraging crowds to gather in person, and the Napanee ceremony around the cenotaph at the Courthouse is moving to a streaming platform.

They fought and fight for the safety of Canadians, and we need to do the same.

As a person who is reluctant to engage in much technology, this COVID world of streaming everything has kick started my anxiety sky high. While I understand our need for digital connections, my need for real world experiences weighs heavily as I struggle with the balance. To Zoom or Not To Zoom is the question these days.

A late season paddle on the Napanee River

With the paddling season nearing an end for another year, I took advantage of a beautiful late-October afternoon to paddle a stretch of the Napanee River that I hadn't yet visited.

While most leaves have fallen here in L&A, the drive from Napanee was still a pretty one. I took the scenic route to the boat launch on Curl Road in Stone Mills between Camden East and Yarker.
