COVID-19: What Is It?

The Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit’s website has a page dedicated to COVID-19 which outlines exactly what this virus is, symptoms to watch for and how it is spread.


What is Expected of Us?

As per the Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit:

Because this virus spreads so easily – we all need to do our part to slow and reduce the spread so our healthcare system is not overloaded. This means:

  • Staying home as much as possible
  • Practice physical distancing – stay 2m (6ft) away from people in public areas – or where a face covering if physical distancing is not possible
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer after being in touch with others or handling anything from outside your home
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or into your arm, not your hands
  • Avoid visiting people in hospitals or long-term care centres
  • Do not share personal items that come into contact with saliva such as toothbrushes, eating utensils, drinks, water bottles, and towels
  • If you are experiencing any respiratory symptoms (including fever) – please self-isolate immediately and complete the online self-assessment or get tested at an assessment centre.
  • Business are required to adopt a policy to ensure facial coverings/masks are work inside enclosed public spaces/settings that are openly accessible to the public. To learn more about face coverings/masks, visit the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS page on the Health Unit’s website.  They have also produced a document with the guidelines for businesses which can be found HERE.

On March 27, 2020, Mayor Doug Malanka declared a state of emergency in the Township of Augusta, under Section 4 (1) of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act and remains effect until further notice.  Declaring an emergency is not an indication that the crisis has escalated in our community. It means that, as a Township, our priority is to be proactive and prepared. It will ensure that Augusta Township’s municipal government can continue to respond quickly to the pandemic and any other events that arise from it in the weeks ahead.
We need residents who feel they are not at risk personally to recognize how serious (and potentially deadly) this pandemic can be to all, especially our elderly and those with a compromised immune system. The formal Declaration also provides the Township of Augusta with additional powers and tools to protect the health and safety of residents. It streamlines the decision-making process through the Municipality’s Emergency Control Group so they can act as quickly as possible when they need to.

Ontario Government New Release: Ontario Extending Stay-at-Home Order across Most of the Province to Save Lives

February 8, 2021

Public Health Units to Gradually Return to the COVID-19 Response Framework

TORONTO — In consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, the government is moving to a regional approach and maintaining the shutdown in the majority of the public health regions in Ontario, including the Stay-at-Home order and all existing public health and workplace safety measures. When it is safe to do so, the province will gradually transition each region from the shutdown measures to a revised and strengthened COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open (the “Framework”).

Details were provided today by Premier Doug Ford, Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, Solicitor General Sylvia Jones, and Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Health.

“Our number one priority will always be protecting the health and safety of all individuals, families and workers across the province,” said Premier Ford. “But we must also consider the severe impact COVID-19 is having on our businesses. That’s why we have been listening to business owners, and we are strengthening and adjusting the Framework to allow more businesses to safely reopen and get people back to work.”

To support the province’s economic recovery, the government has updated the Framework to allow for a safer approach to retail. Limited in-person shopping in Grey-Lockdown zones will be permitted with public health and safety measures, such as limiting capacity to 25 per cent in most retail settings. In addition, public health and safety measures in retail settings will be strengthened for other levels of the Framework. Individuals will also be required to wear a face covering and maintain physical distance when indoors in a business, with limited exceptions.

Other measures include a requirement for individuals to wear a face covering when attending an organized public event or gathering (where permitted) if they are within two metres distance of another individual who is not part of their household (both indoor and outdoor). All other requirements for gatherings and organized public events would be maintained.

Based on the improving local trends of key indicators, including lower transmission of COVID-19, improving hospital capacity, and available public health capacity to conduct rapid case and contact management, the following three regions will be moving back to the Framework at the Green-Prevent level on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 12:01 a.m. and will no longer be subject to the Stay-at-Home order:

  • Hastings Prince Edward Public Health;
  • Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington Public Health; and
  • Renfrew County and District Health Unit.

Due to the fact that public health trends are improving in some regions faster than others, the current Stay-at-Home order will be amended and individual orders making it applicable to each public health region will be made except for the three above. It is proposed that the Stay-at-Home order will continue to apply to 28 public health regions until Tuesday, February 16, 2021. For Toronto, Peel and York regions, it is proposed that the Stay-at-Home order will continue to apply until Monday, February 22, 2021. Final decisions will be subject to review of the trends in public health indicators at that time.

“While we have seen some progress in our fight against COVID-19, the situation in our hospitals remains precarious and the new variants pose a considerable threat to all of us,” said Minister Elliott. “As we cautiously and gradually transition out of the provincewide shutdown, we have developed an emergency brake system giving us the flexibility to contain community spread quickly in a specific region, providing an extra layer of protection.”

Recognizing the risk posed by new variants to the province’s pandemic response, Ontario is introducing an “emergency brake” to allow for immediate action if a public health unit region experiences rapid acceleration in COVID-19 transmission or if its health care system risks becoming overwhelmed. If this occurs, the Chief Medical Officer of Health, in consultation with the local medical officer of health, may advise immediately moving a region into Grey-Lockdown to interrupt transmission.

“While we are seeing our numbers trend in the right direction, our situation remains precarious as the variants of concern remain a serious risk,” said Dr. Williams. “This is not a re-opening or a ‘return to normal’ and we must continue to limit close contact to our immediate households and stay at home except for essential reasons. By continuing to follow all public health and workplace safety measures, we can continue to reduce the number of new cases and the strain on our health system.”

In addition, the provincial emergency declared under s 7.0.1 of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMPCA) will be allowed to terminate at the end of February 9, 2021. While the provincewide Stay-at-Home order will cease to apply in some regions as of February 10, 2021, everyone is strongly advised to continue to stay at home, avoid social gatherings, minimize travel between areas with different rules, and limit close contacts to their household. Employers in all industries should continue to make every effort to allow employees to work from home.

Enforcement of residential evictions will remain paused in the public health unit regions where the provincial Stay-at-Home order remains in effect. This will ensure people are not forced to leave their homes. In regions where the Stay-at-Home order is lifted, the regular process for residential eviction enforcement will resume.

Orders currently in force under the EMCPA have been extended to February 23, 2021 and will be extended further if necessary. O.Reg.55/21 (Compliance Orders for Retirement Homes) is currently in effect until February 19, 2021.

“While the declaration of emergency will be ending, the risks posed by COVID-19 and the new variants remain serious concerns,” said Solicitor General Jones. “That’s why extending the stay-at-home orders for most of the province is necessary to protect our communities, our most vulnerable populations, and stop the spread of COVID-19. We continue to urge all Ontarians to follow public health guidelines and stay home, stay safe, and save lives.”

The Chief Medical Officer of Health will continue to consult with public health and other experts, review data, and provide advice to the government on the appropriate and effective measures that are needed to protect the health of Ontarians. Municipalities and local medical officers of health may have additional restrictions or targeted requirements in their region.

QUICK FACTS

  • Provincewide Shutdown measures went into effect on December 26, 2020 to stop the rapid spread of COVID-19 across the province.
  • The government declared its second provincial emergency on January 12, 2021 and issued a Stay-at-Home order to reduce mobility and address hospital capacity concerns.
  • Ontario has implemented a six-point plan to deal with the new variants which includes mandatory on-arrival testing of international travellers, enhanced screening and sequencing, maintaining public health measures to keep people safe, strengthening case and contact management to track the spread of new cases, enhanced protections for vulnerable populations, and leveraging the latest data to inform public health decisions.
  • In January, Ontario’s provincial offences officers visited 1,147 big-box stores and other essential retail businesses to ensure businesses are following the public health guidelines and properly protecting workers and customers from COVID-19. 112 tickets were issued to businesses and individuals during three inspection campaigns.
  • To support the safe return of in-person learning, Ontario has introduced new measures to continue to protect students and staff against COVID-19 in the classroom.
  • Once the shutdown is lifted, visitor restrictions for long-term care homes will once again apply to those homes in the public health regions that are in the Orange-Restrict level or higher. In addition, long-term care homes must implement enhanced testing requirements.
  • A full list of emergency orders under the EMPCA as well as orders under the ROA can be found on the e-Laws website and at Ontario.ca/alert.

Latest Media Release: Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit

April 14, 2021

COVID-19 Exposure at social gathering outside of Brockville

Individuals who attended a social gathering that occurred on April 1st at 1000 Islands Village rental properties just outside of Brockville, may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, and are advised to:

  • Get tested for COVID-19 at a local assessment centre
  • Monitor for symptoms carefully, even mild ones
  • If symptoms develop or if you were symptomatic and have recovered,
  • Immediately self-isolate
  • Contact the Health Unit at 1-800-660-5853
  • Download the COVID ALERT app, here. The app notifies you if you (or your phone) have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.

We have an obligation to inform the public when we know there is a risk of exposure and cannot identify close contacts directly. Social gatherings continue to be a key factor in the spread COVID-19. Although lockdown measures were introduced provincially, this is a good reminder to limit your contacts to those in your household. Social gatherings like this may bring a sense of normalcy back but they put friends, co-workers and family members at risk since COVID-19 and the variants of concerns can spread very easily.

Because this virus spreads so easily – we all need to do our part.  This means practicing all of the public health measures:

  • Follow the Stay-At-Home Order
  • Stay home as much as possible and limit close contact (no masks and closer than 2m) to your own household (the people you live with)
  • Practice physical distancing – stay 2 meters (6 feet) away from people in public areas
  • Wear a face covering: Minimum of 2 layers of material; 3 will provide further protection when you cannot stay 6 feet away from people out in public – and in indoor public spaces as required
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer after being in touch with others or handling anything from outside your home
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or into your arm, not your hands
  • Do not share personal items that come into contact with saliva such as toothbrushes, eating utensils, drinks, water bottles, and towels

Enforcement agencies were not notified of this event when it was happening.  Officers need to observe the infraction in order to enforce the regulation.  Health Unit resources are best spent working on how to stop the spread of outbreaks like this and protect others from being exposed. If you are aware of an upcoming event or gathering or are witnessing a current gathering, please notify your local police.

For more information about COVID-19, visit www.healthunit.org/coronavirus or call 1-800-660-5853 x2499. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter @LGLHealthunit.
