Published on: 2020/03/27 - in News

The City launched “Together, at Home” on Thursday to help residents stay connected with each other online while dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Together, at Home can be used to share positive stories about how you are helping others while being physically apart; contribute creative ideas for making the most of staying at home; provide accurate information, links and videos on available COVID-19 resources; and ask for help with essential needs.

“We know that residents are coming up with creative ways to spend their time while staying home and staying safe,” said Jen Pinarski, Communications Officer with the City of Kingston. “Residents and businesses are coming together across Kingston to overcome the challenges COVID-19 presents. Together, at Home provides meaningful community interaction – all from the safety of home.”

Access the Together, at Home: COVID-19 program on the Get Involved Kingston platform.

In a release, the City is also reminding residents that Health authorities advise people to practice physical distancing (social distancing), limiting physical closeness and interaction to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Physical distancing includes leaving at least 2 metres (6 feet) between yourself and others, staying at home and avoiding all non-essential errands, refraining from attending social gatherings.
