Current Situation: Ontario Public Health Classification Level Green


Stay Calm, Stay Kind, Stay Well

In order to remain in the Green, we must stay vigilant with COVID-19 precautions.

We have been seeing a deeply concerning trend of a significant increase in the number of cases locally, and in the number of close contacts of these cases. These findings are indicative of fatigue related to following public health measures. It is important that we re-focus our energy on the basic measures that can keep us safe – the same ones that got us through the spring first wave, including: the 3 Ws of Washing hands frequently, Watching distance (ideally 6ft), and wear face covering correctly.
