Under the leadership of the Chief and Band Council, the Grey Bruce Health Unit is working with community health services to assure residents that the COVID-19 cases identified in the community in the past few days do not present any additional risk to the general public. All active cases are contained in one residence/household.
The cases are in self-isolation and are doing all the right things in following direction from Public Health. As such, these individuals present no risk of transmission of COVID-19 to the wider community.
Everyone can prevent the spread of the virus by following the basic precautions of the three W’s –
- Wash hands frequently,
- Watch distance (ideally 6ft), and
- Wear face covering correctly
Additionally, avoid crowds and arrange for outdoor activities instead of indoors whenever possible.
We would remind everyone, the long term defense against COVID-19 is to get vaccinated as soon as possible. If you have had your first dose, get your second. Check the Grey Bruce Health Unit website for vaccine clinic times and locations near you.
Be safe, get the vax!
