City Encourages Residents to Follow Public Health Orders

April 24, 2020

My fellow Steinbach residents, we are in unusual times. The Covid-19 pandemic has changed our lives, but the most important things in our lives have not changed – our families, our friends, and our community spirit. I have seen the extraordinary efforts by the citizens of Steinbach to work together, adapt, and help prevent the spread of this virus. I know we are up to the challenge of this situation and I am confident in our abilities to get through it.

I offer my sincerest appreciation to our front line health care workers - you are the true heroes of this story. Also, thank you to cashiers, people stocking shelves, teachers who continue to teach online, truck drivers for delivering goods, businesses that continue to serve us, as well as those who have had to close their doors. Thank you all for doing your part.

Thank you to Steinbach residents for your continued dedication to keeping our community healthy. We need to keep it up and I know we can. Keep washing your hands, stay home as much as possible, don’t hold or attend gatherings, and follow physical distancing measures. As difficult as it is, by following what our health officials are telling us, we will get through this, and when it is over I know we will be proud of how we handled ourselves and cared for each other. 

This will not last forever. The more vigilant we are now, the sooner our efforts will pay off and restrictions will relax.

Stay strong Steinbach – we will get through this together.

Mayor Earl Funk
