The pride I used to have for this city was always about superficial things: the restaurants, the nightlife, the beautiful sights... But now, I can say that I'm proud to share the same city walls as so many selfless, local Montreal heroes.\nDuring this time of uncertainty, it's refreshing to stumble upon local Montrealers who are going above and beyond to help those in need throughout this confusing time.\nThese courageous individuals have shed some light on our city in this dark time, which was definitely very needed.\nI've been so impressed by not only the courage of some of those that live in my city but the care and compassion that they have shown during these trying times.\nFrom food deliveries to helping the elderly with groceries, the kindness that is being shown throughout our city is truly touching.\nIf you know anyone who is doing their part to help our community during this time, make sure to let us know!\nMedical & Dental Students At McGill\nView this post on Instagram Every gesture counts! In order to protect our health care system, our families and our communities, each and everyone of us needs to do our part to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 global pandemic, beginning with following both Quebec and University directives, among these: Social distancing, staying home as much as possible and keeping a minimum distance of six feet between you and others if you must. Rigorous basic hygiene, including frequent hand washing and covering your mouth or nose with your elbow when coughing or sneezing. Working remotely. If you are returning from travel anywhere outside of Canada or presenting symptoms, self-isolation is essential. A handy guide that explains self-isolation is available here: https://mcgill.ca/x/Zti If you have contracted COVID-19, are awaiting test results or have been required to self-isolate, advise your department head or supervisor. Note that McGill staff required to self-isolate are asked to complete this self-declaration form to advise their supervisor. https://www.mcgill.ca/coronavirus/self-declaration-form Students/Residents are asked to contact their student affairs officer or program director and McGill’s Housing and Hospitality Services, as applicable.
