Holidays and Celebrations:

Cheeseburger Day

1st day of Rosh Hashana (Jewish Observance)

AIDS and Aging Awareness Day – USA

MIA Recognition Day – United States


Cheeseburger Day on a Friday.  Time to celebrate the end of the 1st school week for many.  But don’t celebrate with too many people.

COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions still apply.  Many University of Western Students celebrated too much at large gatherings.  28 university students have been confirmed to have COVID-19 in London Ontario.  The province of Ontario has re-introduced restrictions in some areas (Toronto, Ottawa and Peel) .  Gatherings have been reduced to 10 inside and 25 outside with some exceptions (school, bars, weddings).  Fines have been increased to $10,000 and will be imposed.  We’re being told the 2nd wave is here and to still be cautious, keep your distance and wear a mask.
