COVID-19 Exposure at Brockville Walmart on April 7th

As a result of a COVID-19 exposure, the Health Unit is advising patrons who attended Brockville Walmart on April 7, 2021 between 12:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and to seek testing if symptoms develop.

If you were at Brockville Walmart during those times on April 7, we advise you to:

Because this virus spreads so easily – we all need to do our part to slow and reduce the spread.  This means practicing all of the public health measures:

  • Follow the Stay-At-Home Order
  • Stay home as much as possible and limit close contact (no masks and closer than 2m) to your own household (the people you live with)
  • Practice physical distancing – stay 2 meters (6 feet) away from people in public areas
  • Wear a face covering: Minimum of 2 layers of material; 3 will provide further protection when you cannot stay 6 feet away from people out in public – and in indoor public spaces as required
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer after being in touch with others or handling anything from outside your home
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or into your arm, not your hands
  • Do not share personal items that come into contact with saliva such as toothbrushes, eating utensils, drinks, water bottles, and towels
