News and information about the spread of COVID-19 around the world is coming at us quickly. It can be difficult to keep current and it can be even harder to remain calm given all that is going on. Stress, anxiety, and depression are not unusual for people of all ages. But there are things we can do as individuals and collectively to deal with stress and support one another during these challenging times.  Please visit this provincial website for some useful information on managing COVID-19 stress, anxiety and depression.
