Mayor Bonnie Crombie has tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolating at home.
Crombie announced the diagnosis on her Twitter account late this afternoon, tweeting: “I’ve unfortunately tested positive for COVID-19. I’m isolating at home and continue to follow public health guidelines. My symptoms are, thankfully, mild, which is a reminder of the importance of getting vaccinated, if you haven’t yet. Stay safe and stay healthy.”
In a statement released by the Office of the Mayor, Crombie said she remains in good spirits.
With cases of the virus surging in Mississauga and beyond, and with the onset of the new Omicron variant, Crombie is urging people to be vigilant in fighting off the virus.
“I encourage all Mississaugans to book their first, second or booster shots as soon as possible,” Crombie said in the statement.
She added it’s important for people to continue wearing masks, access rapid tests, limit contacts and stay at home if you’re sick.
“I am incredibly thankful for all the healthcare workers across Mississauga who are once again stepping up to the plate to get boosters into arms,” the mayor continued. “We owe them our endless gratitude.”
