Public Health warns: green does not mean everything goes!


Green - Prevent framework

Grey Bruce is in the Green - Prevent Zone in the Ontario COVID-19 response framework. There remain limits on activity to prevent spread of the COVID-19 virus. Individuals should not be gatherings in uncontrolled situations.

Residents are reminded staying home is still the best way to protect yourself and others. You are strongly advised to:

  • stay home as much as possible
  • avoid social gatherings
  • limit close contacts to your household
  • work from home if possible, and allow your employees to work from home if they can
  • maintain two metre physical distancing
  • avoid travel except for essential reasons; essential includes:
    - going for food or medications
    - going to work – if it can’t be done at home
    - going for healthcare services
    - supporting vulnerable community members
    - going to childcare or school
    - getting exercise or walking pets
  • observe limits of 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors for all organized public events, social gatherings and wedding, funeral and religious ceremonies.
  • Wear a face covering or mask:
    - indoors, any time you are within two metres of someone outside your household
    - if physical distancing cannot be maintained
    - if wearing one is required
    - whenever face-to-face with someone outside of your household, especially if you are within two metres.

Grey-Bruce statistics, to date, indicate that schools are safe environments. The positive outcomes of in-person learning and socialization eclipse the low risk of COVID-19 acquisition in the controlled environment of schools. Implementing robust public health measures such as physical distancing, cleaning practices, direct observation, enhanced screening measures, and wearing a mask correctly all contribute to that success. Remember, not all of the protective measures in schools are in place outside the school environment.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
