People's livelihoods and spiritual and mental health are suffering right now, so we are asking you to help us petition against the extreme measures of this 'emergency brake' lockdown as our region has been put back into the 'grey zone'. 

The restrictions in the 'grey zone' in regards to churches and small businesses are not reasonable considering there is no significant rise in case numbers attributed to them. We are asking our leaders to re-evaluate the guidelines that determine the numbers allowed within a church building or small business in a grey zone. 

Churches and small businesses in Simcoe -Muskoka have gone above and beyond to follow all protocols required of us during this pandemic. We've taken extra measures to keep people safe while following all mandates.

Churches are essential for the spiritual and mental health of its members and their contribution to the community. Churches are seen as a beacon of hope during these difficult times. Now more than ever people need hope, and churches need to be able to welcome those searching for that hope. Limiting the numbers to ten persons in a church building doesn't allow for that.

Small businesses are essential to the livelihoods of families in our community, and they offer unique and special services that big box stores do not. Small businesses are as necessary as big ones but they're being discriminated against right now.

We ask that leaders open ALL small businesses and increase the numbers allowed in churches in Simcoe-Muskoka to at least the same as allowed in a red zone. Our financial, mental and spiritual well-being depend on it.
