All essential services will continue as identified.

The Community Wellness process will continue as outlined on the MCFN Website.

Remember you can protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus to others if you:

  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub.

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze.

  • Avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people.

  • Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell.

Most importantly remember to stay home and only venture out for essential needs as this is our best chance at slowing the spread of COVID-19.
