We are extremely holeful the vaccines developed to render the population immune to the diseasewill be asdministerd quickly ; however, the harsh reality is that the Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet. Healthcare professionals believe it will be several months before the general population could receive the vaccine."

Please remember to mask up and practice social distancing. We hope to see you at Carnival d' Acadie 2022."
