COVID-19 Update from HPPH
March 15, 2020 – 11:45 AM
Please be advised that Dr. Klassen, Medical Officer of Health, has updated the recommendations for residents of Huron and Perth according to the latest guidance from Public Health Agency of Canada and due to the increased cases of COVID-19 in our region.
The recommendations are:
- The Government of Canada has issued an official global travel advisory warning all Canadians to avoid non-essential travel outside of Canada until further notice.
- All travellers arriving in Canada from international points are being asked to self-isolate for 14 days as a precaution.
The Huron Perth Public Health (HPPH) website [www.hpph.ca/coronavirus] has been updated to reflect this change. Today, our Health Line intake line is open from 10am-3pm.
We have also included a link on our website to this Ministry of Health online self-assessment tool [https://www.ontario.ca/page/2019-novel-coronavirus-covid-19-self-assessment]
The recommendations for community events and gatherings may be updated today following additional expected federal and provincial updates.
