COVID-19 Information

 COVID-19 INFORMATION

During this crisis, we are taking our lead from the provincial and federal governments and the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit and coordinate with municipal partners on our local response to the pandemic.  Here is the Framework for Reopening our Province and the Framework for Reopening our Province in Green Zone for your information.

Dr. Jim Chirico, Medical Officer of Health states: “Our communities are experiencing a significant increase in COVID-19 illness. We all must act now to slow the spread. I urge you to:

  • Assume everyone outside of your home has COVID-19 and take precautions.
  • Limit travel outside the home:
    • To attending school or work - if unable to work from home;
    • For essential trips for groceries, medication and medical appointments.
  • Do not travel out of district.
  • Avoid socializing for now.
  • Limit exercise and recreation to outdoor spaces where physical distancing is possible.
  • If you have COVID-19 symptoms or feel ill, isolate immediately and arrange to be tested for COVID-19.”

The Health Unit encourages everyone to remain ‘COVID Kind’ and continue to support each other through these difficult times. Continue to follow public health measures including physical distancing, wearing a face covering, washing or sanitizing hands often, coughing or sneezing into your sleeve.

Celebrate the Holiday Season Safely

Ontario Provides Public Health Advice on How to Protect You and Your Loved Ones

The holidays are going to look a little different this year due to COVID-19. To support Ontarians as they begin to safely plan for the season, the Ontario government, based on the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and input from the Public Health Measures Table, is providing preliminary guidance on how to safely celebrate this year and protect your loved ones.

Details were provided today by Premier Doug Ford, Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, and Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Health.

"I know there are many people looking forward to their traditional family celebrations at this time of year, but to keep your loved ones safe, traditions will have to be adjusted," said Premier Ford. "We're asking everyone to please stick to your own household when celebrating. Avoid big holiday parties or large family dinners to help us stop the spread of this deadly virus. By following this public health advice, we can all have a safe and fun holiday season."

No matter where you live in the province, the safest way to spend the holidays this year is by only celebrating in person with the people you live with and celebrating virtually with everyone else. If you live alone, consider exclusively celebrating with one additional household as a safe way to spend the holidays.
