Dr. Penny Sutcliffe, medical officer of health extended a message of gratitude to Sudburians on Tuesday, through video message via Twitter.

The city's top doc believes that Sudbury is near the end of the first wave of COVID-19, thanks in large part to the efforts of Sudburians in following the advice of health officials.

"All of these measures have really taken us to the good place that we are at right now and I do think that there is very good news in our area," said Sutcliffe.

"I would say that we are safely at the end of our first wave of COVID-19 in our service area. This is tremendous work, we have protected our hospital and our health care workers, we have protected our elderly population who are vulnerable in long-term care homes. People have presented for testing when they have had symptoms, all of this has led us to the really good place that we are at right now."
