Ward 4 and City of Toronto News

Dear West Bend ,
COVID-19 continues to circulate in the city and the age distribution of reported cases has shifted to younger age groups under 40 years old. Provincial orders under the Reopening Act and the City bylaw on physical distancing remain in effect. As the virus continues to circulate, I would like to remind you to adhere to Toronto Public Health’s advice to wash hands often, stay within you social bubble of no more than 10 people, practise physical distancing and wear a mask or face covering where mandatory or when physical distancing cannot be maintained.
As students go back to school, parents are understandably worried. While the Province and local school boards are responsible for the back to school plans, Toronto Public Health has been providing guidance to Toronto school boards on these plans to ensure a safer return to school for children.
Toronto Public Health has established is establishing a team of more than 70 nurses to provide support for schools as they reopen. Public health teams will also be providing mental health and well-being support in school settings, along with rapid-response outbreak investigation, case management and support the planning process for testing if a COVID-19 case is detected in a school setting.
All-way Stop Sign Installation – Brookside Ave and St. Johns Rd
Transportation staff installed an all-way stop at Brookside Ave and St. Johns Road last week, along with crosswalk and zebra markings.
Last year our office was contacted by local residents and parent council members requesting the installation of an all-way stop sign at Brookside Ave and St. Johns Rd. Following a review by City traffic engineers which determined that the installation of an all-way stop sign control was warranted, Councillor Perks brought the item to Toronto and East York Community Council in July 2020 to expedite approval and installation.
A big thank you to the community members who reached out and collected petition signatures.
As always, my office is available for any Ward 4 or City-related matters at councillor_perks@toronto.ca .
Sincerely, Gord
