Local Public Health: Help Stop the Spread

THURSDAY, NOV. 10, 2022

We are entering what is typically respiratory illness season, and our local public health units – Brant County Health Unit and Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit – are advising we are seeing increases in infection indicators across the Grand Erie region, including those for COVID-19 and flu. 

They have shared a letter with more information around respiratory illness season, and measures to help prevent the spread of these illnesses in our schools. They include:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Cover your cough
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands 
  • Stay home when you’re sick – do not attend school or childcare, even with mild symptoms.  
  • Wear a mask to protect against exposure to airborne and respiratory viruses 
  • Make a plan in the event you or your child/children have to stay home from work, school or daycare
  • Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations

You can find more information here, including information around booking COVID-19 vaccinations or the seasonal flu shot.
