The City of Greater Sudbury has launched a new, user-friendly COVID-19 web portal to connect residents with the information, organizations and communities they can rely on during this challenging time.
The city has gathered resources and activities from across the community to make it easier for residents to find ways of caring for their physical, mental and emotional health and to engage with others.
The city website offers helpful listings of services and organizations, and a linked engagement tool features events, businesses and opportunities to add your voice.
“We invite residents to share positivity, inspiration, support and hope during these unprecedented times,” said Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger, in a press release.
“We know the COVID-19 pandemic is especially worrisome for seniors, difficult for the young, challenging for business and disruptive to the arts. Staying informed and connected can help us feel better about managing our daily lives in this new world.”
Resources within five pillars offer information and opportunities for residents to add their voice:
- Community Vibrancy: Local arts and culture organizations and opportunities
- Economic Support and Recovery: Government resources, webinars and support
- Seniors Support: Health and wellness contacts, advice from professionals and helpful service information, such as grocery delivery
- Social Support: Mental and physical health links, and supports for our city’s most vulnerable
- Youth Support: Learning resources, online programming and more
