Message from Bishop Poitras Regarding Covid-19

On Friday, March 13th, I wrote Infofax N. 68 on some of the local effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the coronavirus. As our Diocese, at that time, had no cases of this disease and gatherings of 250 people were allowed, I felt that we could have our usual Sunday celebrations. However, on March 16th, the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada invited Canadians to eliminate gatherings of more than 50 people in order to limit the spread of the new coronavirus; today, March 17th,the Premier of Ontario made this measure mandatory. It seems that we should expect, as for the United States, an even greater reduction in the more or less short term: 10 people!
