This bulletin will only be used to distribute important public health information on an as-needed basis.  

Due to the inefficiency and unreliability of faxing documents, we have discontinued the practice of faxing information to our health care partners, with the exception of Outbreak Notices.

POTENTIAL EXPOSURE TO COVID-19?

If you are concerned about potential exposure to a positive case of COVID-19, please be reassured that any contacts of a confirmed case will be contacted directly and monitored by public health.

Low-risk and indirect contacts should self monitor for symptoms for 14 days from the time of potential exposure and seek testing if symptoms develop. Low risk contacts do not need to isolate unless symptoms develop, and can continue to attend school/work/daycare while monitoring for symptoms.
