The World Health Organization declared the Covid-19 no longer a pandemic on May 5, 2023 and most of the countries did away with mandatary Public Health protocols. However, people are still getting Covid and people are still dying. Several variants are still around and a new Omicron variant, EG.5, has surfaced. Public Health Agency of Canada, while reporting low Covid-19 levels countrywide, have reported an expected increase in the EG.5 variant in Canada.

Dr. Isaac Bogoch, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Toronto, states that vaccines used regardless of the manufacturer, and regardless of the Covid variant, continue to provide significant protection against severe manifestations of the virus. Prevention is the same. EG.5, like its parent Omicron, appears to spread more easily than its predecessors.

The medical profession is encouraging everyone to voluntarily take all precautions.

    • Wear masks in crowded indoor spaces
    • Get booster vaccines, especially the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions
    • Look for ways to improve indoor air quality
    • Wash your hands when returning to indoors

Michael & Lilian's children played a major role at this event. Paul & his wife Nancy and their son Chris with his wife Vivian. Chris's brother David. Felicity and her husband Tim and their son Hunter. Philip & Tamara Petrie and their sons Keane & Becket.
