Mayor Dan Plato wishes all Muslims a blessed Eid-al-Adha<p><br>The COVID-19 pandemic has been a test of our courage, patience and sacrifice. It has also been about compassion and generosity. The theme that underpins Eid-al-Adha is sacrifice and is a familiar concept to many of us during COVID-19. </p><p>It is a sacrifice to adapt our way of life to ensure we wear a mask whenever we leave home. It is a sacrifice to avoid certain activities, which may put others at risk of contracting COVID-19. It is a sacrifice to practice social distancing from your loved ones who are older and have existing health conditions. </p><p>These sacrifices are a way to show care for one another and to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. In this period of uncertainty, we must be able to count on each other to offer support and kindness, as we are #OneCityTogether.</p><p>I wish to applaud all residents for their sacrifices and opening their hearts, to assist others. </p><p>My hope is for this spirit of generosity and sharing with the less fortunate to continue as the impact of COVID-19 on our residents is expected to linger.</p><p>We reiterate our call for residents to continue to adhere to regulations so we may see the end of this pandemic and work on rebuilding our economy through our mutual efforts. </p><p>Eid Mubarak!<br></p>2020-07-30T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#04dc7a0b-ff7e-42b8-8954-886f98506e10;L0|#004dc7a0b-ff7e-42b8-8954-886f98506e10|Muslim;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb1
