Bonnie Crombie returned to her city’s regular COVID-19 updates.
The Mississauga mayor tested positive for the virus right before Christmas.
Crombie has thanked the people of Mississauga for their well-wishes and support during her time in isolation.
“It was incredibly tough being away from my family,” Crombie said to start the briefing. “From my kids to my 85-year-old mother Veronica over the Christmas season and New Year’s as well. I feel for everyone who has faced a similar situation, as well.”
Crombie said people should prepare for a flash flood of omicron cases in the weeks to come. She points out everywhere in the world that has gone through an omicron wave has seen a big spike given that it’s highly transmissible.
She adds once the wave moves through, brighter days are ahead.
Until then, people are advised to continue following the same public health measures that have been in place for most of the pandemic.
