On June11, 2022, the government of Ontario did away with all Public Health protocols to prevent the spread of Covid-19. As of July 27, 2022, most Canadian provinces no longer have any Public Health protocols in place. However, Covid-19 is still here and the Omicron variants are infecting many, even those who have had all their eligible Covid-19 vaccinations.

It is important to get vaccinated as this reduces the impact of the severity of the current variant. Many people have mild symptoms of this disease as a result of being vaccinated.

The medical profession is encouraging everyone to voluntarily take all precautions

    • Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 secs
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
    • Practice social distancing in indoor public spaces – 6 feet from another person
    • Wash your hands whenever you return indoors from outside
    • When you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not on your hands

If you have any of the following symptoms:

    Fever, cough, tiredness, body ache, difficulty breathing.
      • Take a Rapid test
      • Contact Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000, phone your family physician, phone your local Public Health authority. Follow the instructions given to you. Isolate yourself from members of your household.

    Please take care and be safe.
