My statement on COVID-19 (text below)

March 13, 2020
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Abbotsford – MP Ed Fast has issued the following statement:

“Today, the House of Commons unanimously decided to suspend its sittings until April 20th due to the rapidly expanding scope of the COVID-19 Virus.
Going forward, I will not be attending public events and will be doing most of my work over the phone, by Skype/Facetime or by teleconferencing.
My office staff in the constituency and in Ottawa will still be available to assist constituents by telephone (604)557-7888 or by email ed.fast@parl.gc.ca. Until further notice, my constituency staff will be taking “in office” meetings by appointment only.
I am asking my constituents to follow all precautions recommended by Health Canada and make every effort to practice “social distancing” and avoid unnecessary contact with others.
This is a time for all Canadians to put aside their partisan differences. Together, with hope and courage, we will overcome this historic challenge.”
