North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit
NORTH BAY, ON – The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit (Health Unit) is asking residents to be careful what they share. Ontario is experiencing increasing numbers of people becoming ill with COVID-19, which is likely the onset of the provincial second wave. The next few months are marked with special occasions that traditionally bring large groups together, such as Thanksgiving.
“More than ever before, we must slow the spread of COVID-19 by following public health recommendations to protect one another. Mark these special occasions with happy memories and not COVID-19,” says Dr. Jim Chirico, Medical Officer of Health.
To be safe:
No one wants to be the person who gives their loved ones COVID-19. We ask that you think carefully about where you go and what you do to protect the ones you love, especially those who are at greater risk.
Please continue to follow the public health protocols by physical distancing, wearing a face covering in indoor public places including public transit and anywhere physical distancing is a challenge, wash or sanitize your hands often, cough and sneeze into your sleeve and stay home when you feel sick or have symptoms and arrange to be tested.
By working together, we can continue to reduce the spread of COVID-19, keep our economy open and help save lives.
