We are in the process of working with three of the neighbouring health units to enhance support for our current recommendation to “use of facial coverings/cloth masks in indoor public places, if you are able”, by making this required in specific locations. We will be working with businesses on this initiative. This adds to and doesn’t replace all other public health measures. Stay tuned!
We continue to have a low number of new cases, so please continue to practice physical distancing of 2m/6ft, stay home when you are sick, wash your hands, and do regular cleaning of common hard surfaces. When you do need to go out in public, take a cloth face covering/mask with you so you can put it on when you are potentially in close contact with other people.
We all need to work together to help stop others from becoming sick.
Our offices and service sites are closed to the walk-in public.
Our website has answers to many of your questions, but if you would like to speak to someone, call 1-800-660-5853 – extension 2222 for COVID-19 questions, extension 2308 for business re-opening questions, extension 2499 for all other inquires.
