“Moving to a shutdown will assist our effort to limit the transmission of COVID-19.” says Grey Bruce Medical Officer of Health Dr Ian Arra. “In particular. the shutdown helps to address concerns we’ve have with bars and recreation classes that have been a source of transmission.”

To stay safe and reduce transmission of COVID-19 follow these basics:
· Wash your hands frequently
· Watch your distance (ideally 2 m)
· Wear your face covering correctly
