Children in Spain leave their houses for the first time in six weeks…
the country has lifted its 44-day mandatory isolation of younger children.
The much dreamed of return-to-normal life has begun.
Renewed hope is being felt.


*Spain, Italy and France, which have Europe’s highest death tolls from the virus, imposed tough lockdown rules in March but are now reporting significant progress bringing infection rates down and are cautiously ready to start giving their citizens more freedom. – Chris Caulfield, METRO UK

Today, Canada closes its borders.
Canadians abroad were called to come home.
Schools, restaurants and non-essential businesses are closed.

The Dow Jones lost almost 13%, the biggest one day drop since the stock market crash of 1987.

Canada’s chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam regularly tweets about the importance of:

  • Frequent hand washing
  • Coughing and sneezing into your elbow
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

Who would have ever thought that the generic statement, wash your hands, chided to us by our mothers would someday be one of the most important messages we are told to help save our lives and the lives of others?
