July 2, 2021
As Ontario moves June 30 into Step 2 of the roadmap to reopen from the pandemic lockdown, Aurora is releasing its plan.
“I feel we are finally getting to a place where we can get back to a more normal sense of life for our residents and businesses. Everyone has struggled through this pandemic, but I am pleased that the premier has moved Ontario into Step 2 earlier,” Mayor Tom Mrakas said.
“Over 30 per cent of Ontario’s population are fully vaccinated which is impressive, and while we still need to be cautious and follow public health guidelines, we are starting to see the light in the darkness. This is a time to celebrate. We have all worked so hard to get here and have sacrificed so much. I hope you all continue to support our local businesses, enjoy the nice weather and spend some time with your loved ones reconnecting.”
