Responding to COVID-19 in our local communities

The world over, we have witnessed people come together to do their part to support their local communities during the COVID-19 global pandemic. At Trinity College School, we value our community partners and will continue to look for opportunities to assist our community. This week, on behalf of our students and employees, the School provided our local hospital a donation of personal protective equipment (PPE), which included an N95 respirator assembly and 60 refills for the respirator; 19 N95 facemasks; and more than 2,000 nitrile gloves.

We know many of our alumni and parents are already hard at work in their own communities, including the many people working in health care and organizations that assist marginalized people. We want to express our gratitude to all of you.

If your family is seeking an opportunity to give back at this time, you may wish to consider donating to a food bank, donating blood, or supporting a small business in your local area.

And, of course, the number one action we can all take is to practice social distancing and proper handwashing to keep our families and our communities safe. The Government of Canada Public Health site – COVID-19 Prevention & Risks – provides some great resources on how to stay healthy during this time.
