Dear Sault Ste. Marie Police,
On April 13th, a mother took a child to stay with her mother who works at a high risk environment for COVID-19, a long term care facility. The family had agreed for the kids and mother to stay away for this reason.
On April 13th, when we called with our concerns, you told us that nothing could be done because there was no community spread. Little did you know that on that same day, a women was being tested for Covid 19 who had no contact except with people from Sault Ste. Marie; she tested positive. That means there are far more people in the community who have Covid-19 without awareness and spreading it without awareness. But any person in their right mind, would never put a baby in an even potentially unsafe place where a killer virus might lurk.
I am very disappointed in Sault Ste. Marie’s lack of safety procedures where Covid-19 is concerned.
