DriveTest centre in Lindsay faces community scrutiny in shadow of pandemic

You had an article recently about the DriveTest in the Lindsay Square Mall being open to people from Toronto or elsewhere, even with the surge in COVID-19 cases in Toronto.

I have contacted Mayor Andy Letham, MPP Laurie Scott and recently the minister of transport’s office but I have not had any action on this issue.

Today I see that this area of City of Kawartha Lakes is deemed in the “green zone,” meaning an area with low infection rates.

When reading the specifics of this about the green zone, the last notation says that travel should be restricted between areas of high infections (like Toronto) to areas of low infections.

Does this not apply to this situation that I have mentioned?

I know a lot of people feel the same.

This is an area of seniors and we are more susceptible to this virus.

I was mainly told that people could take their test wherever they choose in Ontario, and that they needed to catch up due to the shutdown. This does not make sense!

Please have a look at the fact that this area is deemed green regarding the coronavirus.

Eleanor Plewes, Lindsay
