Taking Care Of Your Mental Health During The Pandemic is IMPORTANT!!!
The Town of Coronach Council wants to thank everyone for respecting the physical and social distancing rules of staying 6 feet or 2 meters apart and for all of your hand washing and care of your neighbours. Please be mindful of neighbours that may need assistance with their garbage cans or groceries and take of one another. Thank you to our local retailers, pharmacist and post office for staying open and working through the new challenges for interacting and doing business.
Here are some links for you to share for mental health support, it’s especially important for our kids who are going through a challening time without their daily socialization and support systems in our teachers and school staff.
