A notice from Hôpital Glengarry Memorial Hospital in Alexandria:

"We would have hoped it would go without saying, but unfortunately, we find ourselves in a position of asking... Please don't steal masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, etc. from hospitals. Our staff and doctors need these supplies to ensure their safety and that of our patients. We know COVID-19 is scary, but when you steal supplies from the hospital, you are putting everyone who works at the hospital and every patient who comes here at risk. Stay home, wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, practice social distancing. These are the best ways to protect yourself and your loved ones. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, go to the emergency department. Our staff will take good care of you."
