TBay Health Unit temporary shutdown, starting today, Saturday December 26 for 14 days

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~  December 26, 2020 (LSN)  The Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU) will be in a temporary shutdown, starting today, Saturday December 26, for 14 days as part of the Government of Ontario Province Wide Shutdown that was announced earlier this week.

This Province wide shutdown means TBDHU will experience time-limited public health and workplace safety measures to control the spread of COVID-19. The measures in place are similar to those experienced in the spring. Individuals are being asked to stay home as much as possible, unless it is for essential reasons.

“While this is not the way we would want to celebrate the holidays, this is an opportunity to get our case numbers under better control,” says Dr. Janet DeMille, Medical Officer of Health.

The Ontario government is imposing a Provincewide Shutdown. Additional restrictions will be put into place and reinforce that Ontarians should stay at home as much as possible to minimize transmission of the virus and prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed. The Provincewide Shutdown came into effect as of Saturday, December 26, 2020, at 12:01
