A message from Council for April 17th, 2020

By April 17, 2020News, Uncategorized






I and the Village Council want to thank all McAdamites for their support in social distancing and helping their friends and neighbours through these stressful times. For us and many of you, there is no greater place to live than in McAdam.

The news is starting to turn for the better with word of the curve flattening in Canada, monetary assistance for those being adversely affected financially, technological advancements in testing, positive results in the race to develop new drugs, work on potential some odd 70 vaccines, that New Brunswick has one of the lowest infection rates in the Country and politicians and industry leaders beginning discussions on how to bring the economy back. There is finally some light at the end of the tunnel.

However, despite all this good and hope filled news, we would like to caution that many of these remedies are still quite a way off in the future with a cure potentially 12 to 18 months away. Therefore, we must prepare ourselves emotionally to still face several weeks if not months of maintaining our social distancing efforts.

Social distancing has worked for us here in the Village. To date, we have not had any instances of COVID-19. Thank-you.

Our Manor has been safe for our loved ones. This is testament to the dedicated staff of both the Manor and the Clinic and the procedures they have put in place. Thank you.

To the McAdamites supporting us by working in the grocery store, pharmacy, garages, hardware stores, Post office and those carrying out municipal operations along with everyone keeping the trucks and trains moving, thank you too for being there.

Our Council is dedicated to the well-being of our community. We will maintain essential services such as policing, water and sewer, fire fighting and garbage collection. We will also continue to post the most recent information we have regarding COVID-19 on our Face Book and Village web pages. You may also reach out to us at anytime if you have questions or concerns. Rest assured, we will evolve our efforts to best serve you and the community while protecting the health of residents and Village staff.

We are all in this together and together we will get through this.

Village Council
