The Grey Bruce Health Unit Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Ian Arra, has renewed the Order issued July 17, 2020, ordering all Commercial Establishments in Grey Bruce, to the fullest extent possible that they, for all the following:

  • ensure effective measures are in place to maintain physical distancing of 2 metres amongst all employees and clients
  • ensure the availability of alcohol-based hand rub at all entrances and exits
  • make the best effort (verbal) to restrict persons from entering the premises or remaining within the premises if not wearing a face covering. Turning away or refusing a customer is not required under this Order.

This Order comes into effect on Friday, 11th day of September, 2020, at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time and shall remain in effect for 4 weeks (being 28 calendar days) from that time. This Order may be rescinded, amended or extended by further Order.

This Order is made pursuant to Section. 22 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. H. 7 as amended.

“The preventative measures, as identified in the renewed Order, reduce the risk of cases and outbreaks of COVID-19 in Grey and Bruce Counties.” says Dr. Ian Arra, Grey Bruce Medical Office of Health. “The community continues to embrace the use of face coverings as a part of their personal routine along with physical distancing and other public health recommendations. There is a great need to continue to do everything possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

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.
