Over a five year period (2012-2017), Hastings Prince Edward Public Health developed and implemented a comprehensive health promotion approach that aimed to address elements of the local built environment that have the potential to influence healthy eating and active living (HEAL) behaviours. This contribution analysis report assesses how these strategies contributed to the development of relevant programs and policies with the potential to create supportive environments for HEAL in Hastings and Prince Edward counties.

If you have returned from travel anywhere outside of Canada, you must self-isolate for 14 days and immediately contact Public Health or your local health care provider if you develop symptoms of COVID-19. Earlier this month all travellers were asked to self-isolated when they returned to Canada. Effective March 25, the federal government made this isolation mandatory under the Quarantine Act to better protect our most vulnerable citizens. Each of us must make the responsible decision to follow the advice of health authorities. It’s in everyone’s best interest to do everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19.
