COVID-19 can be spread very easily, and the City of Brampton is here to remind you of that with a new short film.

The City recently launched a COVID-19 awareness campaign and it has brought in all the theatrics in order to portray just how easily COVID-19 can be spread.

The video aims to drive an emotional response in viewers by demonstrating how seemingly small and innocent actions can deeply affect the people around them, states the City.

“With the holidays around the corner, I want to urge Brampton residents to put the health and safety of themselves, their loved ones and our community first and heed The Spread’s message. Our actions matter,” said Patrick Brown, Mayor of Brampton.

“COVID-19 remains an incredibly dangerous threat in our community, and it will take all of us working together to keep Brampton safe. Please continue to wear your masks and practise physical distancing, and do not gather with anyone outside of your immediate household.”

According to the City of Brampton, The Spread depicts a young woman named Ana, who is trying to do everything that she can to keep herself and her family safe from COVID-19. Despite her efforts, her boyfriend Jordan goes to a party and puts himself, Ana, and her entire family at risk of catching the virus.

The Spread reminds Bramptonians how important it is to follow health and safety protocols.

“COVID-19 continues to spread in our community, and it is greatly impacting our residents and businesses,” says David Barrick, Chief Administrative Officer, City of Brampton.

“The City remains committed to supporting Brampton in its recovery during this difficult time, but all residents must reflect on their actions and follow health and safety protocols in order to stop the spread of the virus.”

With Brampton being one of the cities under the Province’s grey lockdown level, it is important for Bramptonians to do what they can to follow the COVID-19 guidelines in order to limit the spread of the virus.
