Durham Region has launched a new webpage to help residents pass the time during the pandemic.
The page — located at durham.ca/StayHome — has helpful resources on a wide range of subjects to help you stay home, such as fitness, mental health, learning opportunities, digital offerings from local libraries and more.
“The Region of Durham has been inspired by how the community has come together to support one another during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your efforts to stay home, physical distance and help flatten the curve,” reads a media release.
“Our collective efforts are making a difference, however the fight is far from over. It is now more important than ever to stay home and practise physical distancing to keep up the positive momentum.”
There are also downloadable colouring pages that residents can print at home for a fun kid-friendly activity, or simply for a mental break. The colouring pages cover many themes including long-term care, frontline heroes, public works, transit, local business, and more.
“When your creations are done, please share them on social media with the hashtags #DurhamStrong and #StayHome. You can also email them to DurhamStrong@durham.ca, and they will be shared with our staff to help keep them smiling,” the media release reads.
“I am so inspired by the way we have joined together as a community to fight this pandemic,” added Regional Chair John Henry.
“Whether it’s sharing your good news stories and inspirations on social media, helping others in need, or simply saying thank you – we are showing what it means to be #DurhamStrong. Let’s all continue to stay home and do our part. We will get through this together.”
