“I recognize that additional restrictions, especially at this time of year, carry a significant economic, mental, and social burden for Calgarians,” says Mayor Naheed Nenshi. “But it is critical that we all do everything we can to keep our families, neighbours, and communities safe. The safer we can keep each other, and the more we can control this virus, the better able we’ll be to return to normal as vaccines become available.”
